I've been so busy creating my garden art and have enjoyed every minute of it....but I've been eager to try a few new projects, too. Here is my newest non-garden art. I want to try my hand at several craft items involving paper in all or part of the creation.
In this wall decor I crumpled tissue paper to use as the background. I glued it to mat board cut to fit two thrift store wood frames that I painted blue. Then I cut six white silk flowers in half and glued them at the tops of the tissue-covered mat board so they appear to be peeking out from under the frame. Tiny rhinestones sparkle as flower centers. I had found two Wedgewood plaques in a local thrift store. I glued each one inside a frame onto the tissue paper covered background. The one in the oval shape frame is off center for a little added interest. Hope that makes sense. I put two screw eyes and picture wire onto the back of each frame and they're ready to hang.
