mixed medium book style box

hi everyone 
In this project i used staining/antiquing medium by decoart  this medium can be mixed with acrylic paint and applied on woodas stain or used on prepainted item as an antiquing medium.
Let's get into project
First I took primed  MDF bookstyle box or you can prime the box using white light gesso.     

  1.   Once gesso is dry using sand paper lightly sand the box and cleaning nicely with dry cloth.

Took stencil secure it on box  using tape ,stenciled it using texture paste in side of box  .let it dry completely.


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.
Once everything is dry....I started layering 
Used corrugated sheet, chipboard,some flowers
 Applied papericous black gesso all over  embellishments....
Glued all embellishments added some beads and prima marketing melange art pebbles and cover them with gesso.
Finally used light blue acrylic colour on corrugated sheet randomly and on flowers.used prima art alchemy waxs to highlight the embellishments .I worked with waxs until iam happy with final result...
