We were all instructed to take this photo below
and create something with it
And since one of the requirements is that I be in the picture with my creation--here I am (yikes)
Usually with these challenges, I try to do something with textile art, which is my most loved media. But thought I would play with some mixed media art using vintage elements
Victorian Secrets Box
Constructed with an old greeting card box, I covered with vintage wall papers. I overlaid the image and trimmed it with vintage hand made tatting
Lots of vintage buttons, rhinestones, bouquet brooch, even a little string of pearls and a key to unlock the secrets saved
a soft handmade doily graces the corner with a gold foil lining.
I hope you enjoyed, I had fun stepping outside the box--literally!
