Manas from the Olden Days and That Darn Box

Apparently painting larger things than, say, dice boxes is actually a time consuming act. Especially with acrylic paint.  I think I've spent a good 2-4 hours every day for three days now designing and (so far) painting this box (See the January 9th post if you don't know what box). The colour is turning out a very bright and lovely turquoise/teal and now I will be painting the insides of the drawers.  before my paint is completely dry, I wanted to share a little something I found.  

Now let's get to the Manas, these are not that old actually, but given how much I have learnt within the last two years, they are oldies in my own timeline. They are from my first experiments with Premo! and the Premo! glitter. I don't think I posted them on here before, and if I did, it was a while back.

As you may have already noticed, I have, and always had geeky tendencies.  I played a little Magic myself back in the mid-nineties (gawd, feeling old all of a sudden) and was terrible at it, but that didn't mean I didn't like it. These were wall hangers (or whatever you want them to be really) inspired by the Manas in Magic the Gathering: (In order from top left) Mountains, Swamps, Islands, Forests and Plains.

Now I have to get back to painting, so that I can decoupage and finish (keeping my fingers crossed) the piece tomorrow.
