Happy November, Art Anthology fans! I’m here to share an altered cigar box I made, and some of the trials and tribulations I incurred as well!!
Okay, we are still talking about doing art here, but if this post proves anything, it’s that you can probably fix most of your crafty boo-boos and learn a lot along the way. 🙂
I’m still learning new things every time I pick up spray bottle or paint brush, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. That’s what is so great about Art Anthology Paints and mediums and sprays…there’s a style, color and technique for everyone to love!
After laying on an awesome layer of Peacock Feathers and Sandcastle Sprays, I needed some gray to match the papers I would be embellishing my box with. I went with my Sterling Fairy Dust Spray….and added WAY TO MUCH! Even though it washed a lot of my colors away, and it was still absolutely gorgeous, it just didn’t give me the effect I was looking for! 🙁
I got my sprays back out, reapplied them… I choose to blend the colors by dry brushing some gesso over them and then making a few choice sprays of my Steel Colorations spray instead. I loved it!!
In case you liked the way my project was going the first time, I have added all the products used. The Snapguide will let you know what was used when.

I hope this inspires you to get your crafty on. Maybe even dig out the project you gave up on a couple weeks ago! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!!
