This project was recently featured on the Canvas Corp blog and I am happy to be able to now personally show it off to my readers!
I used 7 gypsies Serengeti paper along with a Solo Shadowbox to make this traveling treasure. I tried to stay with an African theme to create this worldly assemblage.
The outside of the box was covered in paper tape to give it texture and alter it a little bit. I also used burlap to give a backdrop to the smaller insets. This adds a rustic element.
The treasures inside started with the 7 gypsies charms. I added from my own stash and I also made a special trip to my local bead shop to find a few unique things to round out my theme. Many of the objects have been altered with patina or gilders paste.
In this piece I added some text and imagery via rub ons. I absolutely am loving the arrow trend that is happening right now and I have added a few here and there to help the eye travel. You can also see that I used rub ons in some of the empty areas.
As always I absolutely loved creating this piece and I just adore being able to share with you! Thank you for stopping by!
