This time, I wanted to highlight and display beautiful natural objects.
I started with a small wooden box which originally had xmas decs in, from The Range.
I painted it with PA Little Black Dress and rubbed Treasure Brass onto the edges.
Next I selected objects to sit in the box.
First, I chose part of a holly leaf which was now a skeleton. I rescued it from the coal bucket the other day.....yes, we still carry coal into the house and burn it! I brushed it with Treasure Brass.
Then I found a dried slice of orange, which I dried years ago to add to xmas decorations. I sprayed it silver and then rubbed Treasure Brass onto the raised surfaces.
Finally, I selected some Chinese Lanterns, that someone gave me a few years ago. I carefully brushed Treasure Brass into these also.
I found many objects that I could have used, so may add to my collection sometime!
