I felt the urge to share a quick but fun project with you that I did today
yesterday I bought these two cameo plaster ornaments at a thrift store
they both were once black with some golden details, I can tell because they are chipped here and there
but when I bought them, they were painted white and decorated with some decoupage flowers
~ something fun to do for you: type 'chipped paint' in google pictures... so pretty! ~
I took the flower paper off ~ I did not really hate it, but was just in the mood for painting
so I got the acrylic paint out and gave both ladies a blue background
the heads became shiny with some pearl gloss ~ although it looks a bit silvery in the pictures
and I took the ladies outside to take some pictures of them
because I thought they would feel comfortable there underneath the pine tree
and to proof that it is still Winter in Canada, although a mild one this year
the ladies and I went back in quickly because is was actually -8C outside
and there I found out the yarn I am using for this crochet project actually matches these new pretties...
do you see any project ideas for this new combination? I would love to know!
I really enjoyed painting these ornaments and am quite satisfied with the result
~ wishing you a wonderful weekend with a pearl gloss ~
