Hi Friends, Today I'm sharing a cool keepsake box for my oldest Grandson, Skyler. He's 21 now so I'm hoping he thinks its cool. He let me know this past year that he has kept every handmade card I've made him over the years and that just melted my heart!
I started with a standard wooden book box, stenciled the top for all over texture. Then I piled on gears, cogs, wheels and a clock. I finished it off with a Relics and Artifacts skull and wings set. Then I painted everything black and hit the high lights with copper and added some copper prills to add more texture. On the inside, I added black velvet paper and a copper chain to hold the top open. As a final touch I added the paper clay motif on the spine of the book box. Thanks for dropping by and having a look! Hugs ~ Dawna
