Altered Box - BoBunny and Pentart

Hello Everyone
Apologies that I have been missing for a week.
My Son was writing exams and it was the first time that he had to write exams, so I had to assist and help and that took up quite a bit of my time.
Thankfully they are writing their last exams today and then there is 2 weeks of school and then holidays! We have made it! LOL
Anyways, I am sharing an altered box that I made.
I was inspired by Marta Lapkowska...she gave me some wonderful seeds of inspiration.
If you haven't checked out her blog or YouTube channel...then really do yourself a favour.
So here's the box.
I used BoBunny laser cut tags and adhered them to the box.
I then used Dekor Paints (Grey and Pink) from Pentart to paint the box and then still added some thick gesso for some white highlights.
Lastly I added some Pentart Chameleon wax and Antique wax paste.
I had taken a few photo's while I was making the box and one can really see the waxes...they really add a shimmery yet "oldy" and vintage feel to it.
I also think the tags add such gorgeous texture and detail to the box...almost like an Indian trinket type box.
I really do love how this turned out.
Well tomorrow is a Public Holiday here and so I am looking forward to a long weekend of relaxation and also some crafting.
Wishing you a fabulous day!
