No Place Like Home

Happy Weekend Friends

I love to paint and design special boxes
and this one was so fun to transform for spring.

I love being at home and I'm sort of a homebody most of the time.
Yes, it's  fun to  shop, visit, travel, treasure hunt and more~
but I can say I am truly happy right here at home.

Starting with a brown paper mache box (which I always fail to take a before pic) sorry!
I base coated it in chalk paint using the color Lace, by DecorArt.
It is truly one of  my favorite shades of ivory white.

To the lid I have painted my signature nest with eggs and roses trailing about
adding Aqua  checks with shading.

Inside I painted it soft Aqua,  also chalk paint by DecorArt
called Vintage.

Lace and trims are added around the lid
The sides grace checks, polka dots and a spring rose vine.
To the background I add a flyspeck technique  to soften the painting.

Shading and dry brushing complete the details.

Ready to hold a special gift, keepsakes or craft  or sewing supplies.

This one is available in my Etsy shoppe, HERE

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend if  you are at home~
because we all know,
