People use wooden keepsake and memory boxes for all sorts of purposes. They provide private space for momentos, letters, photos, jewelry – anything that needs a place all its own. They're given as gifts, and now, cat lovers can get boxes decorated with original art honoring their feline friends.
Deborah Julian's cat art on prints, handmade cards and magnets has been featured in Cat Fancy magazine's holiday gift guide and is sold in gift shops and online
Her work is colorfully creative and often funny. Taking her own images and handcrafting them onto wooden boxes brings cat art into a new area.
The linden wood boxes are constructed with smooth hinges and lined interiors. Adding to the craftsmanship, they're individually hand-painted to accent the art. After the paint dries, the artist uses decoupage to secure her images on the finished top.
The result is a finely decorated wooden keepsake box with a colorful cat art design.
