Altered Thimble Rack 'Treasure'

These are some pictures of the thimble rack that i have altered, it cost couple of pounds from a cheapy shop in town. I painted it with geeso, papered,applied gold paint and more gesso and then used pva mixed with a little tattered rose distress ink as a varnish. it is filled with my 'treasures' some of which I have kept since i was very small. Not sure what anyone else would think of it but its packed with sentimental attachment for me.
