Girl's jewlery box

What are you most proud of? I am not a painter and can't even paint a straight line but I am proud of this box and have continued making different styles and they're all done with dots and stripes. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just that if I can do it anyone can. You just have to use your imagination. It's hard for me to lay out a pattern so I just start and go from there. Amazing what you can do with dots and tape to make the lines. Also a tip that I learned and now use all the time. If you are going to put tape down and then paint a color, say for instance the yellow on the front. I would paint it white first, let it try and then paint the yellow. This way you have no bleeding of paint under the tape.

You Can Make This

CarSok made Girl's jewlery box with:

  • I used a small wood chest that my husband made or you can buy online and then I used acyclic paints and made the design as I went along
