Paisley Box




For Art Adventure this week here is a cardboard box I altered. I painted the whole box with black gesso. The paper on the top and sides is DCDW. I added stamping to the side papers and the lip of the box. I added large wooden balls from the craft store as feet. They are painted with black gesso. The handle on the top is 7 Gypsies. I sprayed the whole box with clear lacquer.

This is lovely - I really like the black with that paper, and the handle on top is a gorgeous finishing touch! Great work and thanks for taking part in our challenge.
