Bon Voyage.

I had a great idea recently about the prize i have offered in my giveaway, the chances are that the tiny watercolour painting will most likely be going overseas somewhere so i decided to make a tiny box for the picture to sit in just to keep it extra safe.


Its a very tatty and worn box complete with a varied selection of labels attached which may indicate its been on a few world journeys! i simply love the way this turned out.

 
The painting can either be kept in the box or displayed on the wall of the person who becomes the lucky owner,  if it is displayed on the wall the box could also be put to good use somewhere else.
While i was constructing this i also came up with the idea of creating a vintage artists box too, complete with paints and a few other accessories,well i seem to have plenty of time on my hands at the moment so hopefully I'll come up with some interesting new pieces.
Take care for now.  Tony.

  7. I agree with Blanche I wish I were the lucky winner too but I dont have any artistic people in my roombox...they're sort of down on their luck society folks who lost everything in the stock market crash
