On top of box I applied thick layer of texture paste and stamp randomly using wooden blocks and to create texture randomly dab on  using my finger.left the box overnight to dry completely.

Once texture paste completely dry applied flesh tint colour acrylic colour allover the box.

Later mixed turquoise blue with decoart antiquing medium applied all over box and while it is wet use a cloth or wet tissue rub over to remove excess colour.
Repeated above step with burnt sienna and antiquing medium.

Glued all embellishments added some beads and prima marketing melange art pebbles and cover them with gesso.
