Piano Girl Book Box

Good Morning Ladies,
I stayed in all weekend. I didn't get much done but I stayed in. I did take Dude for a short walk last night.
The project for today is Piano Girl Book Box
 I picked up the base of this book box at Hobby Lobby. It is a paper mache' book box. Gesso was painted on the entire box and left to dry. The next step was to dry brush blotches of acrylic paint over the gesso. Tim Holtz tissue paper was applied with Mod Podge in matte over the front cover inside and out and the back cover inside and out. The bird cage is a wood piece that was covered in Inka Gold to create a metal look. The piano girl is an image from Cornish Heritage Farms. She was stamped in black ink on glossy paper. The piece was then sponged in two Tim Holtz distressed inks. The spine of the box was covered with Inka Gold as well as the pages on the outside. This was then inked with Tim Holtz distressed ink. The girl was added to the top of the box. The bird cage was glued into place. The ivy was cut from a Creative Expressions die and glued onto the box. The flowers and buttons were then glued into place. The flowers are from Prima. Ivy was glued to the spine of the book.
