Altered Box

Below is the box I started with after it was painted with gesso. The box started out dark brown.

I then covered the box with design paper by K&Company - Watercolor Bouquet. I also used I am Roses flowers most of which I colored with the following Lindys Stamp Gang colors. French Liliac Violet & Breakfast Club Blue.

I used My Favorite Things Die-namics - By The Letters to make the word Beauty. I first cut out the word using thin chipboard, cut out the word again using more design paper and then glued them together. The final touch on the word was Star Dust - Stickles by Ranger. I hope you like the final product, I sure do.
