Altered Box for A Vintage Journey Challenge

Hi everyone!
I've made an altered box for the challenge over at A Vintage Journey Blog where the theme is "think inside or outside the box"
I love to alter old cigar boxes, it's very time consuming but so much fun!
Here is my mixed media box using found objects, a vintage doll face and lots of texture elements. I really enjoy trying to use as many random bits I can find, often 'trash' I found laying around on the ground, lol (free embellishments!)
Here are some pics:





I used acrylic paint and waxes to color the box after first covering it in black gesso.
Thanks for stopping by!
Sarah xoxo
