Arty Girlz Challenge - Alter It!


I had been storing a set of three nesting boxes that had snowmen on them. I had picked them up at an "after Christmas" sale quite a few years ago but had never actually used them for anything. You know how that is!! One day while I was moving them to get something from my closet it dawned on me that I could use them for assemblages. This is the first and is my entry for this week's Arty Girlz Challenge.

Alberta and Ava said...

I just love it. I think anything altered is better than brand new and untouched, and you certainly personalized this box with your brand of creativity and individuality. I really admire all of your work, and it's so exciting to see some in 3-D.
