Hi, its Karen here with another make using the pretty November Colour Theme.  For this I have decorated the *Tic Tac Toe Box* (without the noughts & crosses etc).

After I glued all the pieces together and added some gesso I spread some *white modelling paste* through Gio's pretty *Eighties* mask/stencil.  When this was dry I went over the whole top of the box with the lighter blue in the colour them, then , putting the mask back over, I added the two terracotta colours and the dark brown. (I added the dark brown after this pic was taken)

I added *Crackle Glaze* over the two colours above and around the edge of the box.  When that was dry I added *Red Oxide Antiquing Cream*, rubbing it back when it was dry.  I added *Liquid Glass* to the dark brown areas.

The sides of the lid were painted in dark brown and the base was painted in the blue.  I lined the bottom of the base with brown felt and the inside of the lid with patterned paper.  Then I went round all the edges with a copper pen.

Inside the lid...

Thank you for joining us today, do come and visit us again soon! Take care x
