Here's a very quick weekend project. I've had this wooden box for years!
I keep forgetting to take a before shot. By the time I remembered, I've already painted two coats of acrylic. I sanded the box first before painting to smoothen the wood.
The first coating is sky blue. Then I painted white over it. I dabbed the white paint with sponge to give it a bit of texture and to let some parts of the blue paint show through.
Then, it's rub-ons galore! I almost used up an entire sheet of Fancy Pants Rub-Ons.
After applying the rub-ons, I sanded the surface lightly to give it a worn look. Then I adhered 3 layers of Prima flowers held together by a flower brad.
Here's the other side.
