My working title for this was “Forgettable” but stars are never forgettable. So I changed the title to Ancient Stars, which is what this piece contains. It's not easy accepting the fact that oneself is forgettable, but one needs to face the truth. In most cases, but not all, direct blood relatives love each other no matter what, but that isn't true with strangers who become loved ones with each other as adults. There is no innate bond, to tie them together. Unlike Mute Swans, who mate for life, mankind does not. There are no soulmates. C'est la vie. In 100 years, it won't matter.

"Music Roses Butterfly" - Wood Box

I made a second, larger music roses butterfly wood box, similar to the first box that I made, using a paper cigar box.

I painted over the paper using Martha Stewart Vintage Gold Metallic Paint (346 433 / M18121). I created top, front, back, side and bottom panels for it, and decoupaged them onto the box after the paint was dry. I used two layers of clear coat over that. I left the inside of the box unaltered. Unlike what happened with the first box, the paint didn't chip away at the fold point at the back of the box lid, but it might do so over time.

I'm going to give this to my other sister as a gift. So both sisters will have vintage looking boxes in which to store treasures.
