Happy Birthday Leslie
This started out as my contribution to the We Art Women Exquistite Corpse fundraiser. It was worked on by several artists and was then put in a silent auction. It got no bids, so I got it back. I didn't feel right about trying to sell it and wasn't sure what I would do with it.
Well, last week was my little sisters birthday and she said she would like me to make her something. I had this quote about motivation and working out that I was going to use on a piece celebrating the life of Jack La Lane but thought it would be fitting for this birthday project as Leslie has been working hard this year to lose 100 lbs. I think this time she is really going to do it. She seems really motivated. So I thought this quote would be quite appropriate for her gift and this box was the perfect place to use it.
Unfortunately I do not have a before picture, besides adding the quote, I added most of the embellishments on the front and inside and added paint around the inside of the box, including the word Believe.
