Little paper mache box turns up roses......

Hi all! Long time no see. Sorry about that, seems that my big computer has decided to catch a virus and has crashed on me so I'm trying to use what little resources I have on the laptop so I can share with you some things. And here's the first thing that I want to show you.
I was just craving for something to paint and found this little recipe box in my craft room as I was roaming through the house looking for anything that didn't move that I could through some cute little flowers on. So here's what it looked like before.
then I put a white base coat on it and then used the scruffy brush and some off white paint to help give it a worn and old look and add a bit more dimension to it.
I then added some little roses and rose buds on the top and decided to use the end of my paint brush and add polka dots on the bottom. Sorry for the poor quality of the I said I'm having to use limited resources right now. I'm not sure what I will actually use that box for, although it's a recipe box it could be used for many other things as well. I even though about using it as a birthday box. Maybe I could put all my friends and families birthdays on a card and a few gift ideas and put them in the months of the year.....just a thought.
Hope that you are all having a wonderful day. I have my waders on here cause it's rained for days on end it seems. But on the positive side of all of that, we need the rain to wash away some of the pollen that's been so bad this year. So see there's always a positive to everything. See ya soon
