Altered Jewelry Box

I absolutely love finding items at Thrift Sales to alter. I picked up this jewelry box for a quarter, and went to work. It is made of wood, and still plays music by the way. I put a light coat of gold metallic acrylic paint over it for shimmer, then put together a collage from images I got from Lisa Vollrath's Two Ten Studios, along with several different embellishments. I think this one will make a nice gift item for someone who loves the vintage look.
