The Story of the Louvre Shrine Box




I've been working on this one for a while in stages. I painted the box then added paper, pulled the paper off, added more paper, took the paper off. I painted again. Added a few embellishments and the antique German doll I got from Kecia finally I added the glass and soldered. Note: the soldered work is not great but since it's my first box like this, I'm cutting myself a break. :) I'm also in love. The vintage and new swarovski beads are my new favorite things. They're going to be showing up everywhere!

In case you're curious, this ended up being The Story of the Louvre because the paper I had handy turned out to be a trashed $0.50 copy of a Louvre guidebook. This made up the "walls" of the shrine.
