Jane Austen-Cigar box

Are you a Jane Austen fan? Have you seen the new stamps from Oxford Impressions ?
Well I had a chance to play with the new images and this is one of the projects I did.
I used an old cigar box, Painted it with black gesso and began to collage lots of music paper, lace, An old ad with rocking chairs. The stamped images from Oxford Impressions, some Vintage flowers plucked from a hat, A silver tray and more.

The top view.
You can see the sheet of images  Here

So beautiful. Everything about it is soft & gentle, speaking of a bygone age and yet it is so full of interest & texture - stunning.
