Felt pen decorated box

Oh I know I have posted lots of blogs about decorating boxes, I love boxes and drawers and things for putting things in…I don’t think anyone can ever have too many!

Also, these boxes from The Works are really great, with nice gilt corners, hinges and fastener,  very well priced and just too good to leave in the shop…

So, this one has been decorated using just different types of felt pens and markers (well I did paint the inside, but you could colour that in too with felt-tip pens)

The design on the top looks quite complicated but I took photos along the way and show you how I built up the design….
This box is a really nice size, perfect for storing pens, bits n’ bobs, jewellery, money, make-up, etc., etc.,

After a little sunflower drawing on a small box earlier in the summer, I decided to again use a drawing pen to decorate this box…

So, that’s the top design finished, now to colour in…

I used felt-tip pens (just a restricted palette of dark and light blue, light green and dark pink), including a Pentel Gold Marker and them went over  all the lid top with a green colouring pencil (not a water soluble one)

Then I started on the rest of the box, I painted the inside with gold acrylic paint.
Coloured in the bottom half of the box with the dark pink felt pen (the same as was used on the top), then coloured in the sides of the top with the gold pen.

Finally I decided to draw similar patterns on the sides with a purple pen on top of the dark pink.

I lined the base of the inside with felt.
And that, is that… another pleasant evening spent listening to the radio and drawing at my desk, perfect ending to the day in my mind.
Back soon,
love Rosie
