Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #31 - Merry & Bright

It's time for a new challenge over at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. This month we have a fun color challenge. These colors go with all your Fall/Autumn/Thanksgiving projects. Our sponsor is Eileen Hull and she is giving our lucky random winner one of her awesome dies. Check it out on the blog. 

I decorated my box made with her Square Box die, die cut using mat board. I used IndigoBlu paints, a Jillibean Soup circle stencil and some sequins and tiny rhinestones. I wanted to make it as fun and cheery as possible. To finish it off I added a silver, sequined bow from Maya Road. Below are some photos I snapped along the way. I hope you will play with us this month. Thanks for stopping by!

Here is how the dies look when you first cut them out. 

I added a couple of layers of IndigoBlue Townhouse Teal.

Then I chose one size circle and traced them lightly with a pencil

Then I painted in the circles (not the bottom) an adhered the box
with strong double sided tape.

To finish it off I added two layers of sequins and tiny rhinestone
to each dot and a pretty, sparkly bow.
