For the past few years, I've created all of my patterns and designs using Adobe Illustrator, mostly by manipulating fonts or lines and curves. Things were looking a little too precise, so I decided to draw some new patterns freehand using my tablet. It was great fun and I'm so happy with the results.
I'm getting back into boxes...tooth boxes, presentation boxes, 'just because I love them boxes...so I made Littlest One a new tooth box today using the doodles that I drew. I really love how boxes look before firing, so clean and easy:). The firing and finishing is the challenge for boxes, how to polish inside, etc. (I just put the pearl on for the effect of the finished product....it won't go into the kiln).
The round cutout will hold a baby picture, or a recent Stephen Harper shot:) when the box is finished.
