Mini fretwork box

Hi there, this week I have been mainly drawing and painting more doors for fairies to walk through but don’t worry, I’m not showing you more of those….well not today!

Last night I had a home-alone evening and set myself up with a box set to watch and a lovely box to decorate…

I really like this little box, it’s from The Works and is very well made.
I decided to paint the top silver and considered using my trusty Pentel marker but silver paint was easier.

Then I drew on some big flower shapes, the centre of the flowers is lots of small circles drawn with the same grey Sharpie pen.

I chose a salmony pink Sharpie

and shaded in the top and base of each petal.
Afterwards I went around the centre of the flower with a dark pink colour.


I coloured in the background in black and then went over the whole thing with a clear but silver glittery paint. I put some fairy lights in it and now it’s done.

Hope you like it, if you do please take a look at my new ETSY shop, where this and many other of my painted bits and bobs are for sale.

Back soon,
love Rosie
