Quiet in tha house.....

because I have no voice! And everybody who knows me, knows that's nothing for me.... ;P !!

So I'm sitting here on my own, smiling to my cat, very quiet......

I'm at home now for almost the whole week, tried to work thursday morning.... But it's kinda hard to teach a class without a voice!! LOL

Oh well, every bad thing has a good thing! And the good thing is that I have plenty of time to create! And according to Daphne it makes you feel better too!

So I grabbed my paint, gesso, petroluem gel and I tried the "peeling paint technique". You can reed everything about it over here!

This is what I made:

First I applied old book pages with serviette coat.


Then I painted the box.


I applied petroluem gel and painted over it. This is the result!


So thanks Daphne and Nat for sharing this great technique!

It's a little to late, but my little sis is not 13 anymore!!! LOL (don't get me wrong, I didn't forget her birthday!!!)

Love you little sis!!! XXX

(and that handsome guy is my brother!)

See ya! Xoxo, Monique
