I bought one of the plain wooden boxes at the craft store for a swap. This is what came out of it!! Smiley It's a little larger then a standard notebook. I used watercolors for the background, then black acrylic paint for the tribal pheonix on the front. The rest of the box is painted black, and then it's sealed in a triple thick sealer. Hope you like it! C&C are welcome!



**Note: It has come to my attention that this is not a free image like I had thought. I found this on a tattoo flash site, but someone has told me that it is from someone's Deviant art. Here is the link to her original Pheonix : http://saki-blackwing.deviantart.com/art/Phoenix-15719035. And just so everyone knows, no I did not know this was someone's art, NO I would never do that. I use tribal tattoo designs in my work all the time because they are everywhere. Sorry again, I had not intended to not site her as inspiration, I simply did not know.

Thanks everyone!! I had a lot of fun doing this, even though I got a bit frustrated with getting the lines perfect half way through LOL. I was thinking about doing a cluster of them in different colors with stylized mythical creatures on them.
