Ade's birthday today

It's Ade's birthday today & Tyria & I bought him a selection of pan pastels.  He's looked at them before but they were a tad too expensive for his taste.. well a local craft shop is closing & they were all half price so we grabbed some quickly.

They didn't look much so I made a box to put them in.  Nowt but grey board & gummed tape.  The lid lifts off and the front drops down to allow easy access to 6 trays I made to hold the pastels.

In real life this looks like antique burgundy leather.  Lots of diecuts & texture paste, painted many colours then covered with brown paint & inka golds.  The whole thing is sealed with some of Primas new Art Basics gel medium which has given it a soft subtle shine.
