Now I have to say I totally love these - especially these flat square money boxes - there is a second one which I will show in another post. Loads of stuff to show you.
The cigarette tin is covered with Golden Gel medium and lined with French book text, then once dry the outside was painted black, and stuck to a mini easel also painted black.
The image is printed onto double gesso canvas - single gesso means the ink bleeds out. I bought a roll of double gesso from The Works and cut it down to A4 size to run it through my printer.
The bits and bobs (rosary) was from Chivers who bought me a massive bag of bits of broken jewellery which was superb!
This next one is called "I shot the Sherriff" -
I covered the box sides with scrapbook paper and the roof is covered with leather - just PVA glue BUT I then went back and hammered in some rivets - they went in like butter!
Phew - got loads and loads and loads more to do yet! Better still if you see any of these at the show and want to know more - leave a comment x
