altered wooden box


tada... didn't take too long to finish the box.. all there is left to do is put a picture and create a mini to put inside..What inspired me for this box was an old picture of my great grand parents that I will puting in the frame
here are the steps on what I did,
I used an antiquing medium on the wooden box,to create that aged look, and inked the edge with TH black soot. The beautiful white flower was a flower swap we had at my scrap room, last year. This flower was created by ER. just perfect for this project.. thanks ER! the pink flower I made using Hydrangea flower petals.
The clock face was an old watch I took apart that was no longer working, and I added TH game spinners.Behind that I used the "Recollection" floral embellishement,along with I am roses. You will find I am roses on the top left with a little MS butterfly.The bling at the top was all hand glued by me. and to finished off the book I put a TH corner piece.
Thanks for taken a peak... :)
