It's been a while!  I got married and with all of that madness I haven't had much time to make things.  I made this curiosity box from a dollar store wood jewelry box with a magnetic closure.

On the front is a miniature tarot card mounted (wheel of fortune) on cardstock and surrounded with little stars.


Side detail; the "knob" is a repurposed earring.


And what's this?


A little scene!


The houses are wood stained with ink.  The moon is clay, painted with acrylics.


The sides are covered with more tarot cards (the moon, the sun, the fool, the lovers)


And on the left side, a palmistry chart.  I made the frame from cardstock (what a pain it was to fit!) and then embellished the hell out of it.


So there you have it!

This is lovely. You did a great job on the painting of the moon and the houses. I like the color and texture you achieved.
