Today, I have invited a guest artist from Massachusetts to do a post for Writing Straight from the Heart on a really great, artistic metamorphosis! Her name is Gabriela. She transformed a broken, plain box into a kaleidoscope of colors and designs. Here, in her own words, is how it all came to be:
"This little jewelry box was a found item at a store called Ross. It had a broken knob and was an awful color (like a dark, rusty brown). But I thought the bones were so pretty and the intricate design in the center just wooed me! So I sanded it down, primed it up, repainted it, and threw on a couple layers of lacquer.
