My Birthday was last month and my daughter gave me a beautiful necklace she bought while in Africa:)
Here I am wearing it at the birthday party.
I knew I wanted to create a background to hang it on my wall.
So this is what I ended up with and I am very happy with it :0)
I found a piece of scrap plywood at work that had the shapes of the leaves in the wood pattern and best of all it was free. Wish I had taken a photo of the wood before I did anything to it.
I stained the main parts of the wood and then made a stain glaze for the leaves. then I went over everything with a brown glaze and then a golden glaze. I then waxed the whole thing with paste wax and glued flat rope around it for the frame. I love it!!!
The heat is still with us so I'm spending lots of time indoors which is weird for me. I go out in late evening to tend to the garden for a bit and move the sprinkler about.
Stay cool this week ! My project for this week is to clean and organize my studio so I can set up the new sewing machine and move my computer in there...can you see me happy dancing?
