Blue Poppies

Well they are actually teal.

Today I wanted to share with you a box challenge that I made this week-end.

The idea came from Jane LaFazio's blog where she made a box from denim and painted pieces of fabrics.  I loved what she did so much that I had to try it.  Make sure you look at her tutorial.

It has been awhile since I painted or drew, so these poppies are a little improv, like my my background quilt blocks.  The background is all made of improv. log cabin blocks, painted and then quilted.

I stitched around each poppy to make them pop and wanted each side of this box to be different.  It was just an experiment to see what I could do.

I really enjoyed making this box and let loose with my paints.  I want to thank Jane for sharing it.

But what I really enjoyed was being able to create a little box to put next to my bed for my reading glasses, pens, scribble pad and more.

Thanks for looking,
