Morning. It's my turn to post over at Studio 12 today and I thought you all might like a little change from Christmas? So my inspiration piece today is this little box.
My inspiration for it is a gorgeous little tin plated box I bought back from India many moons ago and over time is has gradually fallen to pieces to the point where it is unrepairable. I've been looking for a replacement one, but was shocked as to how much they cost. I was going to make one using some of the Ten Second Studio sheets, but simply don't have the funds at the moment. I then tried tin cans, but didn't quite get the look I was after. So I had a flick through some magazines and quick google of the internet and found several projects that used tin foil. Now, I know technically it's not a "faux metal" that I've created as tin foil is obviously metal, but the term serves my purpose today and I'm sure you get where I'm coming from anyway? So my box.......
I got given a couple of these little papier mache boxes and they've sat in my stash for ages, so I thought that I'd use one. Now I have to say that these are not the best base for working on when placing panels! For starters they're not particularly square and as such it makes getting a good finish almost impossible! Anyway, as I started using it I thought I'd persevere and finish!
I chose to use the images from the Heavenly Garden section of the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 as they had nice clean lines which I thought would be easy to work with and suit the overall look of the box.
So what do you think? Passable as a metal box or not?
Thanks for stopping by today.
