Flashback to ChildhoodWhen I was a very little kid I wanted to be a wallpaper designer. I hadn't remembered this until I got the strong urge to design and paint a 3D object in a classic style and began the project pictured below. When I got part way through outlining the flower motif on this sweet little wood trinket box it hit me like it was yesterday. All of a sudden I was transported from my current work space back to my grandfather's cottage where I remember leafing through a sample book of wallpaper.
I couldn't have been more than 5 years old but for whatever reason I can picture the scene like it was yesterday. It was a neat memory. I'm starting the second box today and will post pictures soon. In the meantime, here's a bit of a progress montage of the first one, which I plan to line with fancy fabric and also to add hand formed 'feet' to.
