More Brie Box Altered Art- Soulac Du Mer

I just fell in love with this vintage image of a Parisian vacation spot Soulac Sur Mer. This altered brie box has a mix of modern embellishments and thrift store finds. See the picture captions for more info... I will be selling the brie box "starter" kits (a brie box, vintage clip art, trim and instructions) at Les Affaires Sirenes in July.
{I painted the base cream, then crackle medium and a then seafoam green acrylic paint}

{this sweet little guy was in the basket-o-keychains that sits at the checkout of my favorite thrift store in Long Beach}
{the hanger tie for this piece was from a vintage necklace also found at the thrift store, I loved the green velvet!}

{I used gold embossing on the outer rim, and glossy gel medium for the Soulac label. Other embellishments are a paper flower and vintage plastic rhinestone button}

{inside I sparkle up the edge with a glittery iridescent gold glitter, a piece of glitter twig from Fabric Barn in Long Beach}

my little brie box in all her glory.
