I created a box......from scratch!

I have been learning how to make boxes from 3mm thick board and covering them. Here is my first attempt. The box measures approx 22cm x 16cm and is covered with a strong material called Skivertex which resembles leather/snakeskin/crocodile skin. The next one I make will I think be gessoed, painted and embellised. Watch this space.......though it could take some time as we have sold our house in France and are moving to the UK mid March. Exciting times!

Hey Shairon it's a great achievement when you start from scratch isn't it.

I am so pleased you've managed to sell your house and I know you wanted to come back to the UK but you were worried how long it would take, I am so pleased for you all. So where are you looking at coming back to then?

Anyway on that note, have a wonderful Christmas and you never know, depending on where you end up, we may get to meet up sometime next year!!!

Take care - hugs - Sam xxxx
