I made this little jewelry/trinket box quite a waaay back for the Tim Burton swap.  I'm just a tad late posting  Embarrassed
Ahh well.  The image used is NOT my original art.  For shame, I know, but I used the image because my partner had it on her Pinterest with emphatic notes about how much she loved it, so I thought it would be perfect.  Pinterest links it back to invaderzim91 on deviantart.com, who has apparently deactivated their account.  Please, if anyone knows an active account or website that I can link this to in order to give proper credit let me know.  Thanks.

Anyway, back to the project. I transferred the image using the good old graphite on one side of the paper and trace technique, then simply painted to the best of my ability.  Sad, but true.  Afterward, I realized the bottom swirly is all wrong. Whoops! Lastly, I added a little felt liner on the bottom and on the inside. Viola!  A cute little trinket box that I kinda wanted to keep.  I hope my partner found some use for it!







I guess the inside could have used a little something, but it's hard crafting with a hyper active 2 year old running around.  Shocked

Thanks folks!  I'm hoping to move into doing more decorative pieces like this.  I'm super inspired by all the posts in the miscellaneous topics, but I very rarely do anything that qualifies.  I'm kinda stuck making amigurumi (or 'dolls', as my husband calls them), but I love this type of crafting too.

Thanks mockingmakenzie!  I really appreciate Craftster because otherwise I would never remember all the projects I've made and how impressed I sometimes am with them.  (Conversely, I'm also reminded of ones I've made that I was less than impressed with!  :-O
