**I have “found” many—this is just one more of my “collections.” ; D
After playing around with paint, I built a box for it. Think “shadow box.”
I “upholstered” that box with heavy linen. Applied a combination of wooden pegs and teensy cup hooks. Finally, I connected the frame to the box with a piano hinge.
I knew at some point I would come back to it–I just didn’t have the right print or picture to put in it yet, patience. . .
I cut it down, and mounted it to ¼” plywood I cut to fit the frame opening.
I cut ½-round and flat stock for 2 matching “frames,” and sandwiched 3/8″ brass chicken wire between the two–then applied it to the face of the mounted print.
I painted and waxed the wood and outer print area–
and slipped it into the frame.
The reason for the two layered “frame” and chicken wire? To create “space” for the earrings to be hung on the face!
My new jewelry “box!”
I’m sharing with these fabulous linky parties!
