little findings box (FAMM equinox & artistic mum group)



I havent done a project for the Artistic Mum group for a while so decided to alter a little drawer that I found in my stash. I wanted this findings box to reflect me so there are references to lots of thing that I love: the moon, birds that I watch in my garden, chinese symbols reminding me of yoga & kickboxing and the need to focus, guitar plecks as my husband plays guitar, chickens as I like visiting farms and of course lots of vintage & rust. The challenge this month at Fibre Arts & Mixed Media is equinox so be sure to check out all the other entries...
