Right out of the box...

:: soap box ::
mini canvas 
An Artist's Soap Box Life #2
During the alteration of this soap box,
I decided to completely cover it with aluminum foil.
Great effect!
I really like the ruff, textured look and feel of this one. 
materials used to create this project:
soap box
aluminum foil 
matte medium 
acrylic paint
acrylic inks
corrugated cardboard (heart shape)
 vintage book page (text)
window screen scraps (wings) 
silver bead (embellishment) 
wire (28 gauge)

I think we're all blessed with gifts and
I was lucky I just found out what mine was early on and 
have planted that seed and tried to water it every day. 


  1. Very dramatic and beautiful. I love the rich colours.

    1. Hello Jackie
      THANK YOU! ~xx
      Enjoy the inspiration... I so love the texture too! :]
      These make such sweet gifts.

  4. Just beautiful! Love the colors and all the texture!!! Can't figure out where you found window screen scraps, unless it is a scrapbook thing. I'm assuming it is metal and all our window screens have smaller holes and are nylon or something. Anyways, I never thought of painting aluminum foil! Have to try that! Really great!

  5. I just love this box, and that heart! just terrific! hope this note finds you well! Been busy these days but I always love stopping by over here to see what you have going on. Great stuff April, I can really feel it! :))
