Pink in Paris box

My brother gave me a box, it was dark wood with a tile in the middle. Hideous thing lol. So I painted it, white, then pink, then with Tim Holtz distress crackle paint. I added some gorgeous papers, cherry blossoms and I love love love this unicycle. I stamped french script on the edges, then whitewashed over them.

Wow Christi another stunner! Love the soft pastel shades here. That penny farthing charm just seems to appropriate for the Eiffel Tower, and the gorgeous blossom adds real dimension.

Thanks for sharing with us again
