Classic Wedding Altered Box- Heartfelt Creations

Welcome to my blog today, today i am sharing another altered project with you.  This is based on the Tim Holtz Ideaology boxes that you may have seen.  While at Mega Meet in May  i was so inspired by the Stampendous Booth, saw a few of these on display and loved the look of them.

The photos are of a friends wedding that we were honoured to attend last fall, Tina and Mike are the wedding couple and the photos were taken by Darington Photo in Barrie. This project did take alot of time to complete, with the stages in priming and layering the outside of the box, the inside took just as long as each little compartment needed detailing. But i so love how this turned out and want to make another one so my Friends can have it on display in their home.
