Angel Wishes by Conie Fong

Hello, crafty friends!  This month's Facebook theme over at Conie Fong's Art and Design Group is "Always Anything Goes" with an option of  "Anything But a Card".
This is my DT inspirational project:

I started off with the cute wooden box that houses Brie cheese by President:

I coated the entire box with gesso.  Then, I painted it with purple acrylic paint.  Finally, I applied Mod Podge (matte finish) all over it to seal it.

I used the darling "Angel Wishes" image by Conie Fong, found here in her etsy shop:
I coloured this beautiful image with Copics and FC Polychromos pencils.  I glued the patterned paper, the image and the frames onto the box and applied Mod Podge over them. 

I wanted the lace (which was white) to match so I dyed it purple with Glimmer Mist, and glued it around the box.  I lined the insides of the box (top and bottom) with white felt. Lastly, I added the flowers and other embellishments and, voila, my finished box!
Here are some other views:

I had so much fun creating this altered box.  Hope you have a lovely day.  Hugs, Lori xx
