Just a box...D
I had tried altering this box several times and had all but given up with it. Why is it sometimes things just do not go to plan. This started life as an old perfume box. It then started to be an oriental piece in black and red but didn't like it. Then I painted it brown with crackled cream over the top - that did not work for me either. I then collaged it with Da Vinci images on tissue paper and yes you guessed it i didn't like it.
This is the finished product of all my wasted time and it is the final time. I have to say I am still not all that pleased with it. I have covered it in K&Co papers, edged it in beige trimming and covered in varnish. I made the 2 rosettes out of the same trimming. The inside is also covered in another design from the same stack. I added 4 lengths of the trim to tuck paper and bits behind them. I also added another rosette with a couple of pieces hanging down. Quite difficult to see really. I have not decorated the box top as I plan to use this to store ink pads so no real point. Anyway here are the pics......Hope you like it more than I do lol.
