Mini drawers re-do

Some of the little drawers from The Works, which I really love and use everyday, have been put up for sale in my Etsy shop.
Some decorated for Christmas didn’t sell so I decided to re-do them…

The design on these was holly, which I had painted on in relief gel, so I sanded the drawer fronts down to get rid of the holly leaf outline…  IMG_3003
The holly berries had been also drawn on in this gel on the top and sides of the box but I decided to leave them, they make an interesting texture.

I used a Pentel gold marker and covered the entire box and drawer fronts including the little drawer pulls.

I allowed this to dry and then took a trusty Sharpie in green and started to draw a swirl, as I have been doing some gardening today the shape made me think of the ferns in the garden starting to come to life by unfurling…

So then I started to add ferns to my swirls.

When I had finished both sides, top and front I added a series of dots in a dark blue just to one side of the ferns.

And that is it, I will put it in my shop soon.

Thanks for reading,
love Rosie
