Mixed Media Paper Mache Apple!

                                             Happy Wednesday!!
            Here's another Fall project for the Inspired by: Autumn colors challenge!
           You still have time to enter this because it doesn't end until Saturday at EST 6pm!
            I altered a apple paper mache gift box I bought from the craft store.
            First thing I did was add some glossy medium to the stem,
            leaf and on the edges.
            I drew in the lines for the stem, and used a stamp for the leaf, and
            the checkered designs.
            Once that was dried I added the chevron stripes using modeling paste.
             I then painted the entire apple and used Rustic Red and for the
             chevron stripes I used Garnet. I then added a dot stamp with some
             more Rustic Red on the apple. For the stem I used Chocolate CI paint
             and Evergreen for the leaf. I also used some of the Chocolate CI paint
            over the checkered stamp area. I used  Faber Castell big brush pen
            to doodle near the top of the apple and to darken some
            on the checkered stamp area.
            To finish the apple I added some ink with the checkered stamp, some
            beads for some more texture, berries and some raffia.
            A close up is below!

 Here's a close up and I took this picture inside because it was so windy outside.
 I love all the sparkle on this apple!

                                   The amazing CI paints colors!
