Here is another box, just a small one I did lately. It got different than the others and I have to get used to it, although I don't know why. I do like it but I always....have to get used to it, like I said ;)
Let me know what you think of it because I thought about doing more of them if Mösi still got the other ones.
It is old and handmade and lathed so it is a unique item.
It is painted in white/eggshell matt and distressed. I had to be careful painting it because the thin wood warped with too much of liquid. Since it is handmade and fitted just the right way it would have been a sad thing if the cover wouldn't fit anymore. Luckily I managed it to fit in the end.
The image of the blue birds, which makes my heart sing, I found on Karen's Blog (The Graphics Fairy).
Mode Podge, my new friend, made it possible to glue it on and I also could distress the image a little with sandpaper.
Added a piece of torn fabric with a small, old key, a cameo and a bird which gives it a victorian look.
I hope you like it!
So, this is about it for today. I will go fight my cold and try to find the balance between working and relaxing. (If someone's got advices I'm more than happy to learn ;))
