Julia Spiri~ Altered Box

Happy Thursday Crafty Friends! 

I'm here to share with you my make for
Time for a new challenge and it is an Anything Goes Challenge with a twist!  Please check the rules here.

and the twist is:


Add a digi to any object (bottle, clock and more)

 This challenge I used the beautiful Birds & Hair. 

Now I started with a box I had from a Starbucks Mug Set I got

 Here is the inside: 

Now, here's my altered box: 

I started by priming the inside and outside with Gesso. I then inked the edges of some Recollections DP with Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo distress stains. I also used old dictionary paper for the inside of the box.
  I colored the photo with SN Markers

I used my Spellbinders Ovals to cut out the image and glued it to the top of the box with Liquitex Matte Medium.

I then glued Flowers, Mesh Ribbon, Vintage Buttons and Pearls from my stash onto the box. I then primed them with a coat of Gesso (mixed with Water). Once it was dry, I sprayed with Distress Gold Stain, 
Smooch Stains   and Lindy's Stamp Gang- Steampunk Sepia
 Love the dimension it gave:

I added some metal embellishments to the front of the box and finished off with red gems
