I altered this box taking some inspiration from an Opeth song - Porcelain Heart. It was made for a personal swap with another lovely craftster and I'm so glad it made it's journey okay and was well received! I had a really hard time sending it, I was so happy with the way it turned out. Smiley

i...


I, lost all I had (one April day),
I, turned to my friends (nothing to see),
I, wrote down a name (and read it twice),
I, wallow in shame.

I, said that I love (eternal skis),
I, cling to my past (like childish dreams)
I, promised to stay (and dwell my grief)
I, went far away.

I see blood spilled 'neath my feet,
Lead me through wastelands of deceit,
Rest your head now, don't you cry,
Don't ever ask the reason why

Kept inside our idle race
Grow seven idols, false embrace
Rest your head now don't you cry
Don't ever ask the reasons why.

I drew the swirly 'O' part of Opeth on the base of the box.


Inside with the 'spilled blood'.

Gorgeous box.  I think you did a great job.  That's kind of funny because I was just off to do a craft with their O as well.

WOW this is BEAUTIFUL. Not sure the meaning of the song....I'll have to give it a listen to grasp the full meaning but the beginning half of the song makes me think of what I have been going through lately.
