Clothespin Corral

I've been sorting, and organizing these past few days.  I came across a box of vintage clothespins I had bagged up.  I love the patina, and wanted them organized, but still visible.




I painted an old cardboard box white, and followed with a wash of pale green.  After that, I used my anaglypta to add a decorative pattern.  Just use a section of the anaglypta as a stamp.  You can review the post where I originally explained it HERE.




It sorta looks like faded wallpaper,








and makes a nice corral.




Using anaglypta as a stamp is one of my favorite things to do.






I'm planning a larger project with it.


I have more sorting, and organizing to do.  See ya soon.

  4. What a great technique! I adore little clothes pegs, I have a few of them and I've corralled them in a little glass creamer.
