Project on the table

Hello, friends!  I worked on several projects this past weekend including this altered cross.  I had some fun making this distressed lace.  Here's a closer look -
I love leaving the strings long and adding this texture.  The cross was painted with my faux rust technique.
I'm still deciding how to finish her off.  Here's an idea I'm considering that uses a few found objects -

What's on your work table this week? I would love to hear. I'm also working on a red project for Kristin's Summer of Color Challenge.   I'll share that finished project with you tomorrow.  If you get a chance pop over to Kristin's to see some great mixed media art that bloggers have shared this summer.  Her blog is full of inspiration.  xoxo
