* Vera Lane Studio: Girls Want To Have Sun


Happy Monday!

For my DT post for Vera Lane Studio this week, I decided to decorate a wooden money box that picked up at a local store. I thought it would be a good idea to start a Holiday Fund and chose my images accordingly!

I painted the money box with white PaperArtsy Fresco chalk paint, then when dry, I brayered some chalk paints onto my gelli plate and stamped the box sides onto the plate to transfer the colour. Next I added some random stencilling using Faded Jeans Distress Oxide. Modelling paste was applied through a different stencil and I did some stamping with Faded Jeans along the edges. Finally some white paint splatters were added. I used gold acrylic paint for the top of the money box.
I coloured my images with Copic markers and fussy cut them. They were glued directly onto the backgrounds and weighed down until they were affixed securely. I used Beach Love (available on request) and Beach Club.  I only managed to complete three sides.

Beach Love                                                 Beach Club

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
