Flower Box

Over the summer, I decided to stain and paint some of the wood items that was in my to do pile. I purchased the box from Walmart. It was stained with Minwax Red Mahoney. I sprayed the entire box with Minwax Polyurethane because if I made a mistake on painting the box, the paint would not soaked into the wood and I could wipe the paint off before it dried. I painted the box using chalk paint.

I did not paint the inside of the box. It was stained and sealed using polyurethane.

The drawing was done on a Studio Series Artist tile with Faber Castell Pitt Pen and Prismacolor pencils.

The pattern was two part:  Areas that do not overlap, were not colored; and the lighter shades of colors were connected.

Today’s design inspiration comes from a saddle.  Yes, the thing you sit on when you ride a horse.  No, I did not ride a horse.

Saddle with a Twist

I started with creating the drawing below in Corel Draw.  The saddle looked like the design was punched into it, so I tried to add depth.  The line drawing is available for download on the Coloring page.  I have increased the available drawing size from 3.5″ to 7″ because of the detail.
