I just LOVE beginnings....
Choosing a new piece, and seeing all that possibility....imagining where it will lead, what direction it will take, what it will become....
A beautiful, hand made wooden chest. Birch. Sturdy and smooth.
Paint, of course.
But something else inside, something to give it an otherworldly feel. Perhaps not Halloween this time, perhaps something equally magical in it's own way.
Something fit for a a Fairy Princess.
Something to keep her treasures safe...
Aren't these papers beautiful? I'm seeing them decoupaged on the interior, and perhaps a bit on the outside edges. I may need to add some crystals and jewels too...
This one is going to be quite a project, but I'll show you photos as it progresses.
In the meantime, there's a recipe box and a tea box calling my name. One for eBay, and one for the upcoming PFATT Marketplace. Stay tuned. :)
Right now I'm off to take care of some mundane household things like sweeping floors and washing dishes (Cinderella, Cinderella, *sigh*)... Then a bit of packing and shipping to do. Then I can finally sit down to paint! John has kindly volunteered to cook dinner tonight so I can keep creating - isn't that nice? Time was he only knew how to cook things on the grill, but he's evolved. ;)
I'll be back tomorrow with finished goodies to share. If you haven't already, don't forget to stop by the EHAG Art blog to join the Skeleton Key Hunt - one lucky winner will take home a whole bunch of goodies!
Until next time,
