Lovely little treasure chest type box with detail inlaid on front.

I don’t usually colour theme my boxes but I seemed to have so many lovely duck egg blue items I ended up using some here.

I have used these masquerade faces before and this one matches the colour scheme perfectly, along with some vintage buttons.

My usual little pocket watch takes pride of place in the corner of the box and a glass dome magnifies the lovely lady’s face.

Giveaway warning!!

Butterfly Box

As I am getting close to 9,000 views on my Denise’s Boxes wordpress blog I have decided to have a wee giveaway – so get sharing and reblogging and you can all be in with a chance of winning a one of a kind piece of art, haven’t decided exactly what would be a good prize, any ideas?  This wee box was one of my previous giveaways.

When Edgar Allan Poe met Hammer Horror!

I am always amazed at the varied interests that lend themselves to amazing boxes!  No more so than my most recent one – the brief was unusual to say the least Edgar Allan Poe’s iconic poem ‘The Raven’ with a tongue in cheek reference to the old English Hammer Horror films (first one made in the 1930s!)  I have been given permission to upload some pictures and hope that it brings the new owner as much pleasure as I had making it!

Big box with pull out drawer!

A recent quote about Denise’s Boxes….

IMG_0552

“Denise McDowell’s unique artwork reminds me of that sense of intrigue conjured up in childhood when you got to explore objects in an old drawer, to look through dusty storybooks in a grandparent’s house. If you enjoy a sense of nostalgia and mystery and you love old objects click ‘like’ on Denise’s Boxes / Denise McDowell Art”

This was a lovely quote put on Facebook from a fellow artist Laura Butler, I really appreciated the kind words and when describing my art I couldn’t have put it better myself!
