Altered Trinket Box

Hello Crafters,

Today I have  Altered a Trinket Box.

I took a hexagon shaped MDF box.
First I put Gesso on the base and all sides of the box.
After it dried I smoothed it with sand paper.
Then I mixed 3 acrylic colors ( Green, Yellow and White) and painted all over the box.
Heat dried it. Then again with the sand paper I smoothed the surface and the sides of the box.
Now my base was ready. I took a napkin , cut it into randomly according to the design.
with the help of the Mod Podge I stuck the printed napkin all over the box..
Kept it to dry for sometime. Then with a chicken wire stencil added little white textured paint and distressed it with mustard seed DI
Added yellow Handmade fringe flowers, White ready flowers and some peps
with quilled Green scrolls,Prima Pearl swirls   and few metal charms.
Also added a tiny glass bottle with little pearls in it.
Stuck a SUNSHINE sentiment and 2 butterfly die cut from Kaisercraft.
Finally added Pearls all round the top of the hexagon box .
