AEDM & NaNoWriMo Day 4

Today's creation for AEDM was made because I decided to go through the cardboard boxes I have been hoarding from food packaging etc, and soon became swamped in them! Something had to be done, so here is the first half of the two part project:
I decoupaged the cardboard box in pieces of scrap paper and vintage ephemera, painted it, then added metal pieces upcycled from old belts and broken things so it's all eco-friendly. 
Tomorrow I will be using the rest of the food boxes I have in this size to make what is going to go inside - that's where the real fun begins :)
Gotta love some crackle paint drippage! Linking up with Paint Party Friday, Sneak Peak and Artists in Blogland to see what wondrous things are being made.

Day 3's final word count for NaNoWriMo was: 2037

Totalling: 5081 - Whoop, 10% of the way there!
