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,
