Boxing Clever

This week Carol is here for the first time to host a challenge for us.  She has chosen “boxing clever” as your challenge prompt, and created this amazing box to inspire us all.  This challenge simply means you need to use some sort of box in your piece – that could mean an altered box, a handmade box, a shadow box.  Or you could draw a box in your piece or made a card with a box stamp on it.  This is, as always, entirely open to however you’d like to interpret it. Have fun being “boxing clever”!  And remember, you have until the end of November to get your piece finished and posted on our blog.

    I actually created this over the summer, but it fits the box theme. I did create another box project recently, but I’m not entirely happy with how it turned out so I’m sticking with this one. Can you tell I spent a few hours with Michael DeMeng this past summer?
