Yesterday I finished decorating a trinket box for my niece for Christmas. I hate it. It just looks wrong. The paint I chose on the wooden edges is wrong, the brown I used to distress is wrong, the paper doesn't "POP", and the colours clash. You get the idea. I don't really want to show you a failure, but I guess it makes me normal?
I'm mainly bothered because I had such high hopes for this little box. I was excited to use a new skill for the second time. I'm not sure whether to just leave it, try and work on it more, or scrap it and start again. You see it has to match her room. Although my niece is only 1. My sister is slightly OCD with the co-ordination of colours in my nieces room. The colours are mainly cream, brown and I think there is a touch of musk. Maybe I just need to find a different paper and that'll fix everything.
I'm a bit lost as to what to do. And I have lost my vigor for adventure with crafting lately. I guess I'm just tired.
