Mixed Media with France Papillon

I attended a workshop with France last Saturday at 'Let's Be Creative' and we spent a lovely morning using mini canvases to create this piece she called 'Intricate'. It included gold paint, weathered wood crackle, antiquing ........

and some lovely cambray fabric she brought over from Belgium (apparently it is original cotton bandage and you can only buy it there).

She loves rusty elements like I do and used a piece from a clothes peg.

We altered the little bottle by using media acrylics to 'rust' the lid and it has some tiny watch parts inside as well as a chit chat word adhered to a piece of wire to keep it upright.

This is how mine looked when I came home, I didn't quite get it finished ........

.....but I added a vintage photo as well as a rusty spring and a couple more washers from home to make it more personal to me.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your week is going well.
