Altered Box




I've had these little boxes for a few years now and never really did much with them. Well that changed yesterday when I was looking for something to alter with paper per the challenge. First altered box titled "Travel". Second altered box titled "Treasure".

Oh, Judy, it's WONDERFUL! What a stunning way to incorporate the Multi-Medium Technique into your artwork. It's a lovely design, and your altered box is an absolute treasure!

Hello Judy ( or Julie ? ),,
thanks for your comment on my blog Pinkepinke!!

So this is your contribution for the challenge CCC6 !
Nice box you made : I like the vintage papers you used for the background.

Is this one of the things you would like to swap ?... YES, i'm an absolute fairylover...

I would like to trade something with you, but it's indeed important that you check the shipping costs first... Don't put things in a big box too, cause they hold it down at the custom house and then I have to pay to recieve it, although if it's send as a gift, that sometimes makes it easier.

Just contact me again and we can agree on a trade. I see you are a painter, so I could make something with this as a theme...

greetings from belgium
Inge
