Giveaway #3 - The Old Curiosity Box

Got to admit to having a bit of a meltdown over this one
so what's new I hear you ask
meltdowns are the norm here at tatteredrocks HQ

I had to walk away from this one as it came within an inch of going in the bin
Left it alone overnight and persisted with it the next day
Turned out not at all as I envisaged but it has proven the most popular giveaway so far with more than double the names in Henry's Hat for the draw on Tuesday
So, what do I know anyway ???

Apart from several coats of black gesso it is coloured only using Finnabair's waxes ... they really are a most glorious product and so very versatile

The little tiles around the sides were made by stamping into air-drying clay 
never my favourite product to use but worked ok for this project
I wanted the sides really quite dimensional so each little tile was stuck to a mdf panel to give it extra dimension and strength
