" Summer Garden " Framed scene
size 5.5 " squared - recess size 2.75 "
The back has vintage music paper -
and 2 D ring hangers screwed in , with cord across
the top for hanging .
The small frame before the makeover -
It had a piece of burlap inside and a really
tacky looking plastic shell . So i removed them
as best i could and sanded it all . Applied various
acrylic paints to it .
Took a scrap of pale blue vintage dotted swiss fabric , backed it ,
then sewed some vintage millenery flowers with the
stalk still attatched and sewed them in place
with embroidery thread .
Added a wire / net butterfly
And the odd grass accents ..
I`ve decided - to offer this piece as a trade swap -
If anyone is interested ;o)
I am looking for some craft supplies -
Like these small birds which come in different
sizes - 6 on each piece of the card - or something simliar .
And some plastic eggs - in various sizes
and if possible - cream / white ones -
so i can colour them myself ;o)
Also i cannot seem to find - some white
paper photo corners approx 60 of them .
I`ve seen plastic ones but had no luck with the
paper ones - perhaps it`s a dying thing
with going digital on photographs !!
So if you`d like to do a swap -
get in touch please !! ;o)
