teaser pic. spent my afternoon at work decorating the box. and i will be shipping tomorrow morning!



didn't want to spoil any of the contents, so no teaser pics of those Smiley even my bf is excited to hear your reaction, minathia. Smiley

(also: did not draw anything but some text on one side of the box. it's all printed stuff i found using google images. i did color in the rose, however.)

Okay, I am a little bummed I didn't make it into this swap.  I've been re-reading the books and I am up to book 5, with book 6 on it's way in the mail.  I was too swamped with other swaps and couldn't get them done before the deadline. 
What does that all lead up to?  I am stalking this gallery like a crazy person!!  Cheesy  I can't wait to see what kind of goodies you all come up with, and what I can recognize from the books as I'm reading them.

i took some pics before i sent, and since it's a busy halloween weekend, i'll post for minathia.

here's the box:

(the white bits are relevant stanzas from the poem "childe roland to the dark tower came" by robert browning, the book covers are images i found all by the same author when i google image searched.)

top


bottom: (salem's lot cover, zz top album cover and dark tower in silhouette)


sides:




keepsake box i painted and woodburned with the sign of the eld (one side turned out better than the other, naturally...Smiley  my first time using a woodburning pen, incidentally.)




the box with contents:


maturin/SKOLDPADDA! (or: my second run-in with polymer clay. i painted in his cracks and then wiped it off to make him look antique-y. and i glazed him with polymer clay glaze.)


dark tower inspired jewelry! my first necklace and first pair of earrings i've ever made.





and that's it. i also included a little kitty-shaped note.

hope you enjoyed, minathia! everything was made with lots of love and i tried to stray from my comfort zone while deciding what to make you.
