Hand Painted Ornament Box-by Debbie Bankston

I started with a white die cut box, colored it with Faded Jeans Distress Ink from Ranger...when the box was dry, I used Adirondack Dauber paints to paint my snowmen...I use my decorative painting brushes and paint these little snowmen freehand...
I have been painting this little snowman on various surfaces for almost 20 years...I used to basecoat terra cotta pots dark blue and paint this snowman on them...The paint was still wet, so I could not put this box together yet...I will show you the finished box this weekend...I have so many more boxes in the works...Thanks for letting me share my passion for creating with you all...
