I'M LATE :(
I've been on vacation for a week and a half and I can't seem to keep my days straight anymore. All day yesterday I kept thinking it was Thursday...I was wrong :(
It's been a stay at home vacation... one where we have caught up on a multitude of projects around here. We've also had a lot of down time to just relax and visit with family and friends.
Lots of time in the yard and garden ♥ and a wee bit of art time too :)
I needed a gift box for this weekend. So I decided to cover a box my husbands cell phone came in. I like these boxes because they are usually nice and strong.
I took one of my painted background water color sheets cut out the box pattern.
I wasn't smart enough to take a photo of the background page before I cut it out. :(
Then I glued the paper to the box. Filled the box with rock and wrapped rubber bands around it and turned it upside down to dry.
I let it set over night and then I took the rubber bands off and gave it a couple of coats of matte clear coat spray.
I've always had this thing about pretty boxes :) I love collecting them and making them.
This is just a random photo of my cat Jazz...I was trying to catch the intense blue of his eyes. This is the closest I could get .
A few flowers from the garden ...
A few critters....
..and a few random thoughts ♥
Don't forget to visit the other artist this week!
