Mixed media on a mooncake box cover


Mixed-media-on-a-mooncake-box-cover

So I've amassed quite a massive collection of mooncake boxes over the years. These are my fave boxes to alter because they are nice and sturdy. Like this one.


I love the copper finish of the exterior and the gold interior so I decided to just decorate the box cover. 


The textures here were created with wrapping tissue, resin sand medium, chipboard and mica flakes.


I really wanted to use the gorgeous trim sent to me by my bloggy pal Suman Pandit so I added the blue and teal colours.
Playing along with The Mirror Crack'd, a new mixed media challenge blog. :)

*Edited* This project made Top 5 at The Mirror Crack'd.

Oh WOW, I have no idea what a mooncake is, unless it's the thing that the nasty one in The Green Mile chewed up and, well we won't go into detail, BUT what an amazing work of art this is.

I love everything about it, the colours are amazing and all the fabulous texture.

I am so pleased you entered this into our first ever challenge and really hope to see you back again.
