Altering like crazy with pan pastels

Hi everyone, Sorry for my absence but life has conspired against me again and for a while didn't know what else was going to get thrown at me! This also made my mojo decide to go on holiday so have struggled to get anything made that didn't look like "yuk"! The theme this week over on the Premium Crafts/Pan Pastels Challenge blog is to "alter something" and I knew what I wanted to use but was dreading altering it. This was because I had an idea in my head but didn't know if my fingers would then allow me to translate the idea ..... bit fingers crossed, it's come out 75% as I envisaged ....... !  I started with this old box which used to house nail varnishes ...... and turned it in to this ...... . I began by prepping the box with a good layer of Maimeri Gesso and unfortunately for me, it was a GOOD layer and took longer than I anticipated to dry (lol). Once dry I used my newest favourite mask from Premium Craft Brands, A4 Chrysa
