Altered Box

Here is an old cigar box I altered in true mixed media style. Adding paints, Gesso, Tattered Angels Glimmermists and lots of little embellishments



This is the front:
I am going to use it to keep some of my mini books in....

Just happened by your blog and was blown away by your most beautiful artpiece. You haven't lost your magic for making something ordinary into something that is exquisite. You are a legend, Astrid.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
