The Royal Prince

One method I use to break through an artistic block is journaling, and another method is creating decorative boxes.  I enjoy taking a variety of materials, developing a theme, and converting a plain wood box into something that's fun to look at.  It's a great way to use up some of the stacks of art paper I find difficult to pass up when I shop.  It's also a nice confidence booster. 

The box shown here displays a tag with the image of a young man on it.  The photo is vintage and I just love the expression on his face.  Imagine having that kind of confidence at such a young age!

It is a wonderful piece and what a great idea. I save boxes the same way I save paper. All of the pieces on your sidebar are awesome. You are VERY talented!
