Dear Friends Today I present my latest creation in “altered art” which i created as an inspiration for mixed media warrior challenge #3. A few days ago, while rummaging through my collection of junk (which every artist would have), I came across a tin of Protinex. Its then that I decided to beautify this cylindrical junk into something I (or everyone of you who creates it), would be proud to keep on my table. After creating a base on the box using finnabair art basics black gesso I used sand texture and hue of silk acrylic and dusty attics colors to create a nice box background. To beautify the box I used various small trinkets including threads, twines, bracelet, leaf, feather, paper flowers – merging the trinkets into the background by using similar process of gesso and colors on these. On the box lid, I used Prima flakes to give it a lovely antique look. I was so enthralled on creating it that I appropriately named (and branded it) “Passion Box”. You can use it to store or gift chocolates, cookies or even store your keepsakes, jewelry etc. Would surely create a lovely aura around the place you keep this box.

Do let me know how you liked this #altered art made using (mostly) old junk from my collection.
