My altered cigar box

 
the box was wildly colorful and covered with cigar imagery and gold
I took off as much paper as possible then covered it all with gesso and shabby white paint.
It has room inside to store memories or soap for a gift or Mothers' day
you can view more in YouTube

Hi
I've been reading your blog and admiring your inspirational tutorials for some while so thought it time to comment and say thanks.
It's a cold wet Saturday morning here.in England and Mr Tall and I are having a few days in Cornwall, in our motorhome, to visit family.
It's early in the morning and the rain on the roof of the van has woken me..... I can't wait to get out there today and hunt for treasures and boxes to decorate...I just adore your style. Thx for the inspiration.
I've just clicked to follow you too - pls take a look at my humble blog to hopefully follow me too.
Bye for now, Frances
