Painted boxes and some earrings...
In between everything else that I've been doing and since my paint was already out and I was waiting on it to dry a little (without the assist of my heat gun) I took the opportunity to go ahead and paint these cardboard boxes that I've had forever to use to put some supplies in. The large one I put my dimensional flowers in so that they don't get crushed and the small square on I'm using to put my mulberry paper leaves and smaller flowers that are also dimensional. I was really trying to take the pictures so that the "flowers" aka mess that I painted on the tops didn't show but they still did. Sorry to blind you all
Remember I told you all that I WASN'T a fine art painter in an earlier post tonight...well I'm not a tole painter either even as hard as I've tried and as much as I'd love to be. That is just something that I can't seem to get the hang of. But the stripes and polka dots are cute I think and since these aren't going to be given as a gift and only used by myself to house my things...then I'm ok with it. Just thought I'd share.
Here is some earrings that I've made in the last little bit as well. Like I said I can't show you what I've been working on the most recently because they are gifts but I'll be sharing all of that once I know the birthday gifts get to the recipients.
Have a great night all and I'll be back soon!
