This is a mixed media Jewellery box which I have named as ‘Purple beauty’. Mainly because of its rich purple that makes the box so much beautiful.
It’s a rectangle magnetic box which has been altered with seashells and many many
embellishments. The base has been coated with Camel’s Texture White to give it a nice uneven texture.
The seashells, flowers and all other embellishments which I have used in this project are all bought from a local craft store called Itsy Bitsy.
The metal embellishments are also given a texture coat with Camel’s Texture White.
The sides have been stencilled with pattern using Texture White.
The colouring turned out to be unexpected luck. I started off colouring with Blue and Pink. But when I mixed these 2 colours on the surface, I got a rich purple which looked so much better. So, I ended up having this purple. If you look closely, you can find a tinge of pink and blue in the purple. I have also added a bit of yellow here and there to give it an aged look. Finally, the embellishments are coloured with green and yellow.
Here are the colours which I used:
- Camel Fabrica Acrylic colours: Cerulean Blue
- Camel Poster Colour: Pink
- Camel Poster Colour: Chrome Lemon Hue
- Camel Fabrica Acrylic colours: Light Green
