A Keepsake Box

Good morning Sassy fans!  Would you like another little sneak peak this morning?  You saw this beautiful sweetie on Erica's lovely card a few days ago.  I thought I'd give you another little look at "Love Letters".

I decided to use this gorgeous image on a little keepsake box.  I colored this beautiful girl with copics and colored pencils.  My box is paper mache and I painted it with cream-colored paint.  I applied some decorative papers and lace to the box.  Then I added some flourishes, a little lace rosette, some mulberry flowers, and pearls.  This little box will go to my daughter so she can use it to store some of her special little keepsakes.  

I hope you've enjoyed seeing this sassy girl.  Please be sure you mark your calendar for our blog hop this Saturday because you are going to love these new images! 

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Hugs, Anita

  7. Your swirls with that lovely gathered lace floral embellishment make this very special when combined with the image. A lovely gift for your daughter, especially with the shabby chic soft colouring. Her hair colouring gives this real dynamism.
