,,Dance under shimmering moonlight
like the moon was made for you alone,
and let it shine down on your exquisite face
like the light is an extension of your soul. -A.Bentley -

Altering a wooden box is such a fun thing o do because it can be anything you want it to be.For his box, I have combined several tecniques .

flowers, chipboards, tulle ,gazue and lots of metal embellishments. .I also sprinkled some micro beads
On the edges of this box I used modellig paste to make interesting background . I painted it with black gesso ,when it dried I started to apply inka gold : silver gold and gold.I also used mica powders blue opal magic, gold opal magic ,blue ,deep water.
As the final step I started playing with colors .I used mists: pear violet, pastel lavender,calypso teal, pastel blue
