Big jewellry box

I've just finished this jewellry box and I am so pleased with the result! The tutorial for the box and the measurements I found them on Kirsten Aune's blog, She has some very interesting and beautiful things out there.
It's a 6" square box with 4 drawers. The top and bottom are cut from painting board and the little drawers are watercolor paper. I have used gesso, snow paste ( a kind of modeling paste) and cotton bandage for texture, inks, Stewart Gill acrylics, UTEE, metal charm, rhinestones, wire and heart glass bead. The stamped image is made out of polymer clay, painted and coated with clear UTEE. The wings are made from wire and cotton bandage, painted and embelished with Fresco flakes from Stewart Gill.
Hope you'll like it.

And some details here:

Now, I just need to make some jewellry for it, right? LOL

Thanks for your visit and beautiful comments,

Lots of love, Sanda xx
