August Challenge *

over at Altered Eclectics and as always it is anything goes as long as it is altered objects and mixed media.  For this challenge I have entered an altered wooden box I have put together for a wedding present - this was a request for a friend.  I really enjoyed doing this too.  First of all I painted a darker beige before the crackle medium and cream paint.  Loved watching paint crackle - still find it all quite magical lol.  I then decoupaged a really gorgeous napkin of a boy and girl pretending to get married.  Love them.  I then did the same process for the inside and used a rose napkin.  I did alot of sanding in between to keep the surfaces smooth.  I finished it all off with a hardwearing varnish.  The lock on the box had broken so I fixed a new one on and voile all done!  Now for the pics

Thanks so much for visiting me and do come again, and while you are at please go on over to Altered Eclectics and join in with the fun

Hugz always
