A little mixed media/altered thingy !....


This started life as a thimble shelf , bought from a charity shop. It is roughly 8" high and 5.5" wide. I painted firstly with matt white emulsion, then covered that with white tissue paper which had been stamped with script in black. Added various inks in lavender and dusky pink followed by the trinkets and embellishments .
I am going to enter this in the challenge over on Vintage Artisans..the theme is vintage shabby chic.
