Altered Jewellery Box

Good Morning all Hope you're all well. My Boy's are home 
this week so I'm going to spend some quality time with them But Just popped in to show you this Altered
Jewellery Box with Graphic 45 papers 
A Ladies Diary 
I found this Jewellery Box in a charity shop and just new it had to come home with me 

So I striped it down Glass out and Knobs off Gave a Light sanding to remove the old varnish off it then washed it off and waited for it to dry completely before Giving it a coat of White
Gesso Then speeding the 
     drying process up with my heat gun Then a coat of 
    Antique White Pebeo paint Which is used  for wood, Metal 

              Whilst the Paint is drying  I Found  the Papers
I wanted to use I thought The Graphic 45
      A Ladies Diary was  perfect  for this Project
           I cut out all the Pieces That I needed ready Then cover
       them and the box in Mod-podge and stuck in  Place on the
 Jewellery Box added some pretty Lace and one 
of the Beautiful Ladies on to the Glass
 I just loved how it turned out hope you like it to 

Thanks So much for calling by today
