Altered Box - Art on the Go

Time  for another challenge at Altered Eclectics this month, as always it is another Anything Goes challenge as long as it is mixed media or altered art.    I am headed out in September on a 3 month RV trip to New Mexico and Utah and thought I would alter a box to put so of my crafting supplies in while travelling.

I found this box to alter at a flea market. 

I decoupaged pieces of maps from an old atlas I had for the first layer of my box then collages dollar store gems and added some wonderful original sentiments from Chris Stern of CS Designs. CS designs has some beautiful sentiments along with unique digital stamps. 

More views of the altered box.
