I needed to explore the notion of confinement and restriction, assemblage seemed the way to go.

This is a smaller box with a sweet little antique doll peeping out.
Distressed paint and paper walls .. my favourite look.

Work is progressing....

Work in progress, I've discovered I really like making small pieces of furniture to go inside my boxes.  Made from thin wood, painted and stained and then distressed, great fun! Ready to fill with bottles, I think, this time for an idea that's coming together.  The figure that's planned for this box is so beautiful, will start to put her together soon.
