Been having a paint!

Well I had put my paints away for a while but I couldn't resist any longer and the little brown box I bought a while ago needed to be decorated.
So I set to and decided to do it with pansies all over it!
I started off painting the box a pale cream colour but that looked too insipid so I added a bit of mustard colouor to the next coat and didnt mix it thoroughly so it had a slight uneven fininsh.
The inside I painted a dark green then left the whole thing to dry out.
I then stamped the leaves and the pansies all over the box and the lid and then left it until today to paint!
I used a mixture of lilacs and cream for the smaller pansies and purples and yellows for the larger ones. The leaves I used a dark green and cream to give the leaf effect!
I am pretty pleased with how it looks and will use it as a gift box for someone in the near future!
Here is a photo of the box fully closed.
And here is one with the lid slighty open so you can see inside.

Well I have now put the paints away for a while now...until the urge overwhelms me again!!!
Bye for now and thanks for looking
