Draw designs on unfinished wood (I did not seal it)
Trace areas that are meant to be backgrounds with Permapque pens.
Cover entirely areas you want to paint (the girl) with painters tape
In a well ventilated area use the Tint it spray paint to add one layer of color over the entire box * make sure you cover the top so the paint doesn't get inside
Remove the tape and use Gelatos and a wet paintbrush to color the images, use gesso to get a solid white.
Use Testors gold enamel paint marker to color some of the chipboard and something on your painted section to make it pop.
ON some of the chipboard use repositionable glue, allow it to dry and add Thermowebs Deco Foil
Use glue to add the chipboard into place.
