She listened to her heart above all other voices.
I thought I would give the whole rug dilemma a rest
and write instead about this bright and bold jewelry box that I painted up last month for The Traveling Door.
I found her all plain, brown, and forlorn at the G.W.
I knew I could bring her back to life.
I got such great feedback on this obelisk that I had painted a few weeks earlier
that I decided to use a similar color scheme on this piece.
So here she is after the first few blocks of color.
In the past I have painted jewelry boxes in more neutral colors that would fit in almost any bedroom but I decided to throw caution to the wind on this one.
"Listen to my heart above all other voices"
Not only am I a fan of bright and bold hues but I also like to mix patterns when I create a painted piece.
So, I blew this baby up with both...
Then, when ever possible, and if the right quote comes to mind, I like to add words to a piece.
I just think it makes it a bit more interesting.
I saw this quote somewhere and knew I wanted to use it.
I thought it worked here.
Thanks for visiting.
Have a colorful weekend and don't forget to listen to your heart.

I could use a little inspiration myself so I will be linking up my jewelry box and these fun parties and searching out other colorful painted pieces.
