Here is the keepsake box I have been working on. The image is a digitally modified photo of my father as a young man. To create this individual portrait, I cropped an image of my father out of a black-and-white group photo. Then I modified the picture to create a new background, and added the texture and color. I painted the wooden box and added the photographic image, allowing some of the wood grain to show through.
