Altered Wreath

Hi Friends,

Am back with yet another mixed media project. This time altered a round chopping board as well as the Grape wine wreath.

Must say i fell in love with this 8" wreath and bought just to alter it for my project!

Amazingly it turned out well!!

Gifted this to a Dear soul for her birthday today :)

  • Base is a 10" round chopping board. I bought it for making into a wall art, but it now houses this wreath so beautifully.

  • It looks this plain in the beginning and its the look of it, after light paste stenciling and white crackle paste textures.

  • Yup i converted its plain back surface like above, by stenciling and waxing with Prima waxes.
  • That metal embellishment is to hide the brand inscription there, and so it could be centrally placed.
And below are closer shots of the Mixed media piece, which i thoroughly enjoyed making it!

  • Loads of Prima and Finnabair products used!
