Here is the latest box, Calico Crafts sent me a pack of watch parts a while back now and I have finaly put them to use on this wooden box!

I applied gesso to the lid of the box thickly and sprinkled the small cogs and watch parts into it and allowed it to dry before decorating with Americana Acrylic paints and Distress inks.

I used an old typewriter key for the handle which was kindly sent to me from Louise over at Alter it Monthly.
