This keepsake box is adorned with a compass rose on top and a 3-D gem-like painted centerpiece; inside, an extremely padded landscape speaks to our journey on many levels. Techniques include painting on fabric to create a reflective gemstone, painting shadows and highlights, covering a ring bezel for the padded gemstone, spectacular padding effects, and easy finishing. A wonderful project for those who are ready to move to the next level in their needlework!
