This is a book box that I thought would serve well as a gift box and a nice decorative piece to be kept by the recipient after opening as a trinket / keepsake box or whatever else they may decide.
It is painted firstly with gesso then decorated with the lace and texture paste through stencils, I added the flowers and other embellishments after it had been painted. The roses were shop bought but sprayed with Deco Art Media misters the trinkets were all tinted with gilding wax and the buttons were upturned and a small pearl put in to cover the button holes.
All embellishments were fixed in place with Pinflair glue gel. The sentiment is a stamp from a Chocolate Baroque Rose set. Then finally the roses and leaves were brushed with Glue Gloss and sprinkled with glitter and the lace was highlighted with stickles.
Thank you for looking
