I loved making my Linda Cain, PA, Altered Trading Block yesterday, so much so that I decided to make another today. I made this one slightly bigger. I mixed south pacific with beach hut for the background.
I coloured the squares with tango, pumpkin soup and yellow submarine and stamped the LP oriental images in black archival. This time as the squares are larger, I decided to leave some white space.
I dug out some metal feet, an idea-ology fastener and a large Chinese coin charm.
The feet proved to be too heavy for the box, so I went with the wooden tiles like I'd previously used.
Added some gems, this was done whilst it was flat ie before I assembled the box.
A view from the side.
The coin with the fastener for the lid.
And finally a top view.
Again, love how this came out.
I'm also entering into Artful Times as they have a theme of Oriental ' Year of the Horse, but they have said you don't have to include a horse!!
