I’m not done with the top of this box, but the rest is good to go. I used a variety of paint markers for this. I wasn’t really crazy about the Liquitex markers, but I did like the Permapaque markers.
You may be saying to yourself, “she is putting a crazy amount of time and energy into decorating a cardboard box.” I have had this thought from time to time, but I’m really loving how it is coming out! This is really close to the design I want for our bathroom shower curtain. It is another variation on mandala 10/100. And the paints are a NEW ACRYLIC paint set that I got on the wonderful suggestion from Laura at Create Art Everyday.
I have been working in my gratitude journal, but I haven’t finished anything yet. I’ve become obsessed with these storage boxes! I hope you have some beauty in your day today!
This is getting close to the design I want for my shower curtain! I’m going to make some collage, mandala design and color palate changes, but I’m getting close! We got 2 more relocation cubes of stuff and our little house is bursting at the seams. The good news is that we have all of the parts of our bed together, I found my kitchen knives and pot covers and I found my PAINTBRUSHES!
Here is how the storage box is looking so far. Do you think I should copy the top 2″ of the labyrinth side onto the cover? I’m going to store bed linens/hats etc. in it and have it in a stack of similar boxes in the corner of the living room. I’ll post photos when I’m done. I’ve been watching Small Space Big Style on HGTV when I need to take a rest to keep me motivated and inspired.
Oh, I looked at what the Diva challenge was for this week and it was to use circles and the title was “Running Round in Circles” which really seemed fitting for my art and my life right now!
