Mixed Media Altered Make up Case Guest Designer project for SnP

Hello all, this is Phoebe Tonosaki fm Japan. I am very honored to be invited as the Guest Designer for Scraps N Pieces blog. Thank you for having me!

Today I want to share with you my project for March’s moodboard as below. My key words for this project are: Purple, yellow, orange, texture , round shaped and lavender.


I have an old make up case which I loved a lot when I was young and throughout the years I do not use that vivid colors of make up anymore thus it was laying inside the drawer gathering dust for some time now. So I had this idea to alter it into something special and beautiful. And this is the perfect object for this project.


I have chosen the newewst products fm Finnabair for the coloring. The new rust paste sets are very easy to use and versatile. The best thing is that you do not even need to prime the surface before coloring. Texture was easily made just with the Paper Paste and a brush!! Dried lavender was used to add up the texture. Remember to be careful if your area has high humidity and it may cause your piece to get moldy on the lavenders. 

Here I used the Finnbair Impasto paints to make the solid color of purple. Impasto paint is a rich and heavy body matte acrylic paint which gives very beautiful and vintage look of everything. I strongly encourage you to try out this product. You will not be disappointed!

I have a process video for this project. I hope you will like it and please let me know if you have any opinions!
