Homage to Autumn altered box


Its quite hard to see all the detail so have made a little video..click here to view it on you tube.






I recently bought a house box shape and decided to alter it with lots of items from our woodland walks. I have used graphics 45 papers, spray ink, twigs, acorns ,photos of my sons and lots of bark on the roof.



Its typical autumn weather now with lots of rain and gale force winds..hope your nice and warm where you are. I have noticed the challenge over at alter it monthly is boxes so be sure to check out all the other entries too...
