I was inspired to making this book box in to an odds & ends box, something my father always had, he also used his old tobacco tins too.
So here it is,my All Male Book Box, which is my design team project for Altered Eclectics...their challenge starts today.
Once it was completely dry I dry brushed over it with brown acrylic paint. After leaving it over night, I lavishly applied Korma Crackle to age it, leaving it in a warm room to speed the crackle up...I was really pleased with the effect, well worth applying the Korma Crackle quite thickly in a couple of areas.
The images and labels and tickets are all from my stash, some of which I used for a topper for the box, adding a large brass paper clip for effect.
All the trinkets inside the box are also from my stash, in fact the keys, button and buckle strap were actually my fathers and the collar stud in the bottom right was my grandads.
