Mixed media layers

Cool stuff!
Hey crafty people Rita Barakat here-lets take a look at this months kit!

I used a little bit of everything in this kit for this project!
If you have ever thought about trying a mixed media kit this is the one!
Ephemera sheets, paint, matte gel medium, crackle, washi tape and a project to alter?

 I got so carried away I didn't even take pics while in progress!
But from the results you can see I had a lot of fun!
I used the matte medium to adhere the birds and seal the box.
(Under and on top of the ephemera.)
Then I added layers of colors, washi tape and rub ons (Rub ons not in the kit.)

When I started this box it seemed a  
little flat so I went back and added a little texture to this  
box with drywall tape and a little modeling paste.
I stamped some words here and there. 
Dont be afraid to keep adding layers of colors,
it creates depth.

You can see the washi tape on the corner- I did add a little matte medium
over it to blend better.
Here are two of the hinges in the kit.
Makes it look so polished don't you think?
There are so many possibilities for this kit!
Have you ordered yours yet?
