A Not Gardening Day

20 comments


Hello everyone. I hope you are all well. I spent my day painting my Essential Oils box. I’ve had this box a couple of years and always meant to decorate it as it is made of a plain softwood. I just need to varnish it now. I’ll do that to orrow. But I’m really pleased with the results. :)

I love it when an idea turns out well!

You have done a great job, Karen, & it looks different from any you can buy in a shop! Nothing like a piece of original work these days! Well done! :)

Hi Karen, unfortunately I'm not seeing any photo's at the moment, I don't know what's happened, but I've given it a like anyway, I'm sure it looks very nice, Derek.

Hi Karen, problem solved!!, for some reason my banking security was activated, normally that wouldn't even let me into GoY, and I agree, it looks very nice, thanks for the wish to help, Derek.

Thank you...I love these metallic acrylic paints. :) I am currently using them to paint a stylised peacock, but I've been a bit lazy on that lately.
