Age is a funny part of a human life. When we are young we wish to be older and when we are older we long to be young again. 😆 Nevertheless, a birthday is a beautiful occasion to gift someone with extraordinary things. As far as my memory goes, when choosing a present I would always search for something practical. This has not changed till now.😉
My dear friend Ela celebrated her birthday in September. For this occasion, I chose to make a box which will be a wonderful addition to her lovely living room.
I have this amazing rice paper with beautiful flowers which I bought in Poland. From the very beginning, I knew that I will use it to create Ela’s gift. She likes the orange color and I hope that those beautiful roses will enclose her heart. :D
The sides of the box have been lightly painted with deluded acrylic paint. I wanted to achieve an effect where the fracture of the wood is visible.
I love the small strings of the rice paper that are even more visible after applying many layers of varnish. The little fibers add a deepness to the whole design. Don’t you think? :)
