Wooden Organiser – Mixed Media

i have had this waiting around to be prettied for quite a few years. After doing the box in these papers, i decided this was the range to do this in too.
another of my DT projects for July for Thompsonscraftsupplies
it is quite a large piece and holds 12 x 12. Therefore, it is great for holding my latest collection as i am working through them, so it is now a permanent fixture on my desk.
for this i used the
13 arts color glow tanzanite
pentart wax purple
AB studio stencil ID 94
AB studio papers diva
Dina Wakley paints heather and fuschia
from my stash i also used a white gesso and a heavy paste.
i completely covered my piece with the white gesso and let it dry.
Then i sponged over that with the heather and the fuchsia  paints.
After I added some of the tanzanite here and there and activated it with water and dried.
Next was the papers. I fussy cut and used gel medium to glue them on all over the piece. Even the half flowers from the edge of the papers were good as i had a lot of straight edges to place them.
i then coloured my heavy paste with a drop of the fuchsia paint and used this with my stencil, just overlapping the papers in places and filling the gaps in between my papers.
when this was dry i added some more of the color glow tanzanite powder and activated with water and moved the colours around, i then dried it with my heat gun. Lastly, i used my pentart wax to bring out more of the texture from the stencil paste.
