little boxes

I have been painting up some more boxes, these are such fun to do. I am using those little brown papier mache boxes that you can buy from hobby shops in all sorts of shapes and sizes, These are 3″ square.   I have used acrylics to paint them  and then some have had the glitter treatment. finally finished off with a matt varnish to protect them.

The  box on the top of the pile has a surprise inside it ….

This box has a fish painted in the bottom of the box, and around the lid it says – jolly little boat sailing on the deep blue sea.
