So this is what I made.....


So I had a problem starting at first but when I got busy with it, the ideas popped in my head and it turned out pretty good I think. So I had this medium sized wooden trunk...and worked on it with Gesso first to get rid of the wooden color......so then I got the Tim Holtz stampset out and played with that.....and after took Wendy's stencil the diamond one and played with it on the background.....


So this is the backside of the Trunk and it is allmost the same as the front but this time I had this vintage image and thought if I would place a Metall piece behind it and some lace it would look better some small sized flowers at the bottom and the same Paris Tag that I cut myself.....a small crinoline on top and the backside was finished...


Then I thought that the sides and the top were not good enough so the fabulous lace that Linda has in her shop came in handy. I colored it a bit in the vintage style and placed it on top of the trunk.


So this is the front of the Trunk and it has the embossing paste from The Wendy and her fabulous stencil that I played with. Tim Holtz his stampset came out of my closet and I found the Eifeltower, lovely isn't it? I embossed it and cut another Eifeltower and placed it to give it some dimension. Too bad you cannot see it on the picture. 

So on top of the Trunk I played a bit with Crackle and colored it with Vintage Photo.


This picture shows the back again, but the picture is not that great, so sorry about that.....
