handmade paint box

Handmade will always have my heart.  Hubby made me this painting box over 10 years ago and i use it to store my paints and brushes. It had desperately needed a new paint design. It was only ever 1/2 finished anyway.

I kept the original base colours which were purple and lime green.

I chose three words that motivate me and remind me why i create : Art, Inspired & Create.


The flowers are recycled, remnant & vintage fabric and tulle die cut circles curled with a flame. and hot glued on after the paint dried.

Love that quote “She didn’t care if it was perfect.” Sums up my art well. Not perfect but i enjoy creating it and looking at it.
