Remember My Birthday Necklace?
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?
Studio is still tore up so this will also be my link for
