Щ is for shtu-ka (pike)

Illustrating cyrillic letters might just be my new November tradition. This time, Щ is for shtuka (Bulgarian for pike), FCP is for Fox Capture Plan and this November, exactly like the previous one, is for tangerines and hot jasmine tea.

Jewellery Fox Box DIY

How does the perfect jewellery box look?
Mon will show you how: she has created the cutest little fox box to hold all precious things. It's a fox. It's a box. It's everything you've ever wanted. 
You can turn a plain wooden box into a cute treasure-holder fox in 4 simple steps. Here's how 
Mon did it:

Take out your colour pencils, brushes and acrylic paint, put on some good music and let's get started. Draw a quick sketch of a fox face, or use Mon's sneaky little foxy as inspiration. Using a light orange pencil, draw thin guides on the top of your box. Apply two coats of acrylic paint and let it dry for about half an hour. 
Once the paint is completely dry, you can start adding details and patterns. Use an earbud dipped in paint to easily create a dotted pattern in the inside of the box. Let it dry again and you're ready to put your most precious things inside. Your fox will keep them safe.
