Golden Treasure

I'm so Excited.

I've been decorating heart shaped trinket boxes for a while, but this is the first chance I have had to decorate wooden boxes in new shapes and sizes,  My delivery came on Monday and I could wait to get stuck in.  Unfortunately, real life intruded and I have only been able to do a small amount each day.

This is how my box started out

I painted my Box with white acrylic, then roughly edged it with my gold Krylon leafing pen.  I have then stamped and inked with tea dye distress ink.  I had a fridge magnet that I wasn't overly fond of so i have taken the back off of it and removed the picture, created a new "face" for it and coloured it with my krylon pen.

To finish off I have used flowers, lace, stick on pearls, part of a broken necklace and some gems taken from an  old belt.  Lots of recycling on this one.

I can't wait to try another one of these.

I am entering this one for the following challenges:-
The Crazy Challenge - Lace and or  pearls
Fab n Funky - Recycle it
Everybody Art - Shabby
Crafty Creations - Something new
