Mixed Media Monday - Open
The theme this week is "What You Loved Doing in 2008" well as someone still very new to working in mixed media, what I loved doing was experimenting, learning and doing new things and so I am entering this little jewellery box made for the girlfriend of one of my nephews. It is my first altered wooden box and started life as a plain wood box, I painted it pink - she is a very pink girl - then added tissue paper stamped also in pink to the sides, the top is stamped with melted pearl utee and pearls and my first experiment with some fusible film in the top left corner. The whole was then covered in Stewart Gill Galactica paint for sparkle. The inside of the lid is painted and stamped and the inner lined with velvet. It is her Christmas present but she has not seen t yet so hope she likes it.
