Mixed Media Altered Drawer - vintage miniature desk

As someone who LOVE stationery and "hoard" way too much stationery, imagine the joy when I found this three parts drawers !!!



It wasnt exactly the same as what I planned but as I worked on it, 

it slowly became a vintage type of display. 

Although not everything is in miniature size but I think they are cute <3

The bound books in mini size are definitely one of my fav items in this piece ! 


 and also the handmade little paper clip

 I added quite a great deal of texture pastes and crackle paste to build up the texture. I imagine the old desk is like that after years of use.

For the coloring, I used mainly Finnabair rusty paste set and very normal acrylic paints
