This is one of Artchix's gorgeous little "dreamboxes", otherwise known as tin nichos from Mexico intended for use as a small personal shrine. I absolutely love working with these, they come in all sizes, and this one is about 5" high.
This is the first time I've painted one (I've always used alcohol inks before) and I was quite pleased with the effect. It gave me lots of scope to just play about ... and a tiny touch of pink and sparkly just seemed right. I sealed the paint afterwards with Mod Podge to protect it.
Inside I've used two artchix images - the door and a winged Mona. You can't see very well but Mona is quite 3D because I mounted her on a card tab about half an inch in front of the door.
The last couple of days have been spent joyfully playing with Sharon and Linda, who came down here for our own "Small Art Adventure". We've had such a brilliant time making art together it seems very quiet and sad up here in my attic since they left ....
