CraftyIndividuals: Boxes of all sorts

And the new theme of the bi-monthly challenge on the CraftyIndividuals' blog is 'Boxes of all sorts' chosen by the lovely Sylvie. My cup of tea, since I like so much to alter, so these are my efforts:
E per il nuovo challenge sul blog della CraftyIndividuals questo mese ci buttiamo su tutti i tipi di scatole! Sicuramente un tema a me favorito.
From a clock box:
To...oh, my least favourite colour! Yes I tried to go out of my comfort zone :-)
Ho provato a non usare i miei soliti colori...
This box is made gluing bits of lace, covered it with black gesso and mica powders, not other mediums involved. Stamps CI-389 and CI-410
And a very flat one
For this metallic box, I used metallic charms, black gesso, mica powders and CI-137
CHALLENGE GUIDELINES 
To enter this month's Crafty Individuals Challenge please put together your chosen project, which must include at least one Crafty Individuals product.

Incredible that these started out as boring boxes! I am amazed at the effect you have got with just black gesso & mica powders on the blue box Gio!!!! The other box is sooo pretty and there is so much to see! Wonderful work xxx

Wow Gio, la scatolina dell'orologio è una gioia per gli occhi!!! Non sarà il tuo colours combo preferito, ma che spettacolo!!! Sfumature da mille e una notte! :D
Molto bella anche quella superbassa, e credo che tu abbia un armadio pieno di chincaglierie a cui attingere per le tue megatextures!! :)
