Altered Art with Sentiment

Hi crafty heads,
Here I am with a new challenge for this month, Altered Art with any sentiment ..
Getting dirty finger tips, a messy craft room and the feeling of achieving the desired result..and here is the end result...
I altered a wooden box with giving it a base coat with black gesso ( his is the first time i am experimenting with the white gesso's counterpart..and i loved the results..)
Used Dylusions 5x8 staggered brickwork stencil with some sakura modelling paste and heat set it. On heating the modelling paste it will bubble up little, i wanted this raised look instead of the flat surface..
This metal face had been in my stash for sometime now, and finally i thought of working the design of my box around this charm.
The face of the box had lots of metal flower charms, pearls, sequins adhered with the help of Glossy accents and also little texture using the Heidi Swapp stencil. After adhering all the charms i brushed black gesso all over the charms and modelling paste.
I have used Lindys Stamp Gang'sstarbust sprays..copper brown, poker orange and poppy teal. The next step was to jazz up the box a little and Viva's inka gold is the best product at hand.
I have also lined the inside box with Krylon gold leafing pen..i just love this versatile pen, you can use it on any surface and it dries super fast...
The side of the box also has a sentiment heat embossed in gold. The stamp os part of the penny black gratitude stamp set.
