Gift for a friend...



Hi everyone, I hope your all fine and enjoying the sun again...
I made this last week and sent it to a friend of mine, the last one I made her was wearing abit thin so hope she liked this...
I did abit of powertex mixed media on the lid, I know she likes that sort of design and I have fun making them...as you may have noticed...
The box is covered in wallpaper, then the canvas was loaded with  flower, netting powertex balls,a chippie sign that I picked up on eBay and metal plates which I split into two,and flat back string pearls and the name plate is from hobbyhouse I think...long time sat in a jar... then all painted with Rustin's hessian chalk paint and finally polished off with various deco art  cream..
That's about it again, I am off to see if any challenges for this, thanks so much for popping in, see you soon...
