"...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

I made another treasure box last week. I found some things in my stash that were just sitting there begging to be used. When it is time for something in my treasure trove to be used it is as if that is all I can think about, getting them putting them together and painting them up. I used some graphics from The Graphics Fairy and applied them to the painted pieces using the wax paper method. I printed the image on wax paper and then placed it on the box ink side down and rubbed it gently with a rubber spatula until it was set. I coated the images with polyethylene, sanded it lightly to remove some paint and then glazed it. The knob was on the door when I got it and so ornate that I left it but added a handle to the front to open the box with. This treasure box will make a great place to store sewing stuff or magazines. I took it to the shop today, hope it finds the person it was destined to be with.
