Tsunami Rose Challenge 9:Altered Item

Hey Peeps its challenge day over at Tsunami Rose and this week the theme is Altered Item
The girls have come up with some beautiful projects and here's my contribution

I painted the box with white acrylic and then applied a crackle medium in areas
once dry i rubbed in walnut stain DI to accent the crackles
I Printed various sheets from the Parisian Daydream on to velum and tore or cut them out
and stuck with modge podge
I've found if you sprinkle the vellum straight away after printing with fine clear detail EP it lessens the chance of the images bleeding when you glue them
I used scraps of left over velum around my display and bunged them in the box with the aid off pinflair glue and then added a few accents on wire, the tassel is attached with a brad

Hope you like and i hope you can come over and join in
the deets are below
