This altered collage cigar box was salvaged from a local smoke shop and recreated into a one-of-a-kind piece of functional art. Perfect for storing letters, jewelry and cards, this box would be a unique addition to your home decor.

ARTISTIC PROCESS AND DETAILS:

* The wood cigar box was first painted with two coats of grey acrylic paint. To add surface interest and texture, I used a pulled-paper technique. With matte acrylic gel, I imprinted strips of newspaper in layers on the outside of the box.

* The surreal dream collages on the lid of the box were made from decorative cardstock and Steampunk ink engravings from the Harter's Pictorial Archive. The quote, "Inside this room, all my dreams become realities....and some of my realities become dreams", is from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

* I adhered tarot cards around the outside and inside of the box. Four wood blocks were painted grey, then sea-sponged with crimson and glued to the bottom with Goop contact adhesive. The entire box was sealed with both Mod Podge and varnish.
