Altered Art

Its been a while since I posted something so I thought I'd share some altered art with you.  I've been tinkering around with the 8 x 8 matchbook boxes, part of the G45's staples collection and with the help of some really black paint, a very sharp knife, a few sheets of chipboard, some fabulous paper from the Olde Cutiosity Shoppe collection by G45 and a little of my own inspiration I transformed an 8 x 8 box from this: 

to this Curio Cabinet:

Olde Curiosity Shoppe Curio Cabinet and Folio Album

I couldn't resist adding a mini copy of the classic book by Charles Dickens on top of the cabinet

To see the full project and folio album inside just click the video link below

I hope this inspires you to make an altered project too :-)
