What I'm working on...

This is what I'm working on currently.  I've started with a Crafty Chica shrine I picked up on sale about a year ago.  I've begun by spraying it with my Color Mists --they really take to natural wood nicely, like a stain almost, yet without the mess of a stain. 
I had some Anaglypta wallpaper that was in one of my erosion bundles , so I decided to give my box a embossed faux metal look. Again, I used my Color Mists to give the wallpaper an aged and patinaed look. View my process below:

  1. The metallic looking wallpaper is amazing. You have such a good imagination to think these things up. And, your pictures and description means we can all try it; thanks.
