Bless You!

Have you been suffering from hay fever this summer?  Mine has been awful!  To make blowing my nose 200 times a day a bit more bearable I jazzed up a kraft tissue box...

I've used gesso as a base for acrylic paints and added a strip of butterfly ribbon.

 I took the pink and lilac flowers from the background of the ribbon and carried them through in the painting.

I stippled a few shades of blue on the lid - I was really pleased with how it turned out.

I'm really loving using this butterfly ribbon - have you got some yet?

 Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh that's lovely! And yes, the snotty season is with me good and proper. :o(

  2. That's lovely.

    Hope your Hayfever eases soon.

  3. Oh your tissue box is lovely and that ribbon you created perfect. Hope you get over your hay-fever soon it's horrible to have.

    Hugs Eliza
