Once again, I was almost done, before I thought to take a pic.
The inserts were already there. I decoupaged the french book page on one, poked holes, and attached the fleur-de-lis with wire.
After putting everything together, I antiqued the entire piece, and did a gesso wash over it. I distressed the frame.
See ya soon.

Rosemary, it's delicious! And so light with that touch of gesso. You are always so creative!ReplyDelete
Rosemary, since following your blog I've been experimenting with Gesso and I love the stuff. I will be sharing a make over soon. Its a kist with enormous metal handles and front clasp. I used your method of grey underneath and gesso over the top and I love the look!ReplyDelete
