PanPastels - Anything Goes

This little box has been hanging around my desk for ages just waiting to be altered, so I decided to use my PanPastels on it. Firstly I painted it with white acrylic paint and when dry blended magenta, magenta extra dark and white PPs completely over it, inside and out and then sprayed with silver spray and 
sparkle.






 I stamped the sides and lid and onto some tissue wrap and added some pearls and lace round the sides and lid.





 To complete this little box I made rosettes - 5 layers in total, making 3 rosettes and added a little bead on the top.

Come and have some fun with us at PanPastel UK and you could be in with a chance of winning a set of pans and some tools from Your Creativity Store.

If you are reading this on Sunday then I am away at the Isle of Wight music festival. When I finalised the post the long range weather forecast looked like rain, rain and more rain. We don't camp thank goodness, but I will let you know what it was like when I get back. Some great bands on with Bruce Springstein doing a 2 3/4 hour set tonight.

Hi Brenda
This is a darling little box.
Isn't it the way that something can be kicking around for ages and then one day it is the perfect item to alter or make use of.
Gorgeously decadent.

Another amazing project and a beautiful one at that, I am very boring with my Pan Pastels and must try harder, you a a huge inspiration. Sounds like the IOW was a riot with or without mud so glad you had such a good time and so nice to see you with your treasure !!
