Altered box.........D

Happy Easter Monday everybody

I hope you have all enjoyed the Eater break.  I know I have as have spent alot of time in my craftroom .. on and off.

Today I want to share with you my latest project.  A box I have altered.  I have surprised myself in the fact I remembered to take a pic of the box before altering lol.

I laid down modelling paste and stippled it.  I painted it black and then dry brushed red, gold and silver over the top.  I used alot of my precious to me metal embellishments.  I very rarely use them lol.  I painted them black and then wiped a little rub n buff over the top. I then added the clasp on the front. 

 That's about it really, a quite quick project and satisfying at the same time.

Hope you enjoyed your visit and please call back soon.
