I have been playing around with this box for a couple of weeks. It had been hanging out in my rainy day pile (to steal what Yvonne normally says) and I finally dusted it off it off and glued all the pieces together. A layer of gesso combined with some shimmer spray and some inks helped age it.
See, in my travels I pick up little things here and there. One day I found a vintage crystal door knob and that brass key, another day I found that little metal piece and those flowers I used for the top. Thought it was time for them to all hang out on an art piece I'd enjoy.
That oval metal faucet handle came from the house we're working on and that glass roundel I found out back at work. Glass makers have been messing around in this area for the last 150 or so years so you never know what you might find.
There is a vintage crystal that also came from the house we're working on, while that green metal pill container came from another that we were gutting. Then there is an acrylic faucet handle and those glass door knob feet. Fun things!
Really enjoying all these fun little things and guess what! Plenty of room to add more!
Happy Hump Day!
