Altered Art - Curio On Wheels

The day was made for laziness, and lying on one's back in green places, and staring at the sky till its brightness forced one to shut one's eyes and go to sleep . . .

This little wooden box has been laying around on my desk for ages... waiting to be altered. Inspired by the new collection of Graphic 45 I thought about something curio :) It smells nice as well as I have added cloves on the bottom, even after covering them in glue... they still smell strong.

Materials I used are;
Wooden box
Ranger paint dabbers - White
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad - Vintage Photo
Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Game Pieces
Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Sprocket Gears
7 Gypsies Apothecary - Bottle and sticker
Graphic 45 - Communique collection
Crafters Workshop 6x6 template - Chicken wire & Art Is
Wooden Spools
Metal corner
Digital Image from The Graphics Fairy
Cloves from my kitchen :)
