The Lisa.B.Designs challenge this month is all about acrylic paints backgrounds and coincidentally
the Tando Creative blog also had a Painty week this month.

With that in mind I created a masterboard with a piece of white A3 paper. Stupidly I didn't take a picture of the completed background before I started cutting into it so this is what is left!

I followed Lisa's tutorial quite closely, and used hexagons and circles stencils (die-cut with Papertrey inks dies) and for stamps Stampendous Grunge and Paper Artsy ESN10 (in lieu of Lisa's bottle's lid)

Then I started on the finished product, which I am currently thinking will be made of 3 tubular boxes and will be used for storage in the bathroom. I pulled out the closest themed stamps I had, the Crafty Individuals perfume bottles from the CI-341 set and stamped them in black. On a whim, I threw in the twenties lady (from another set) and coloured the images with Big Brush pens (Faber Castell) and a water brush.

To make it durable (and washable) I then applied several coats of varnish (DecoArt Soft-Touch) and sprayed the plastic lid with Silver paint (not sure this will be durable as I was supposed to prime it first with a specialist product).

Thanks for coming by,
