New project to share

Well I finished the book page matte or frame from my previous post here.  I used it in my latest project.  I found this vintage holy card and roof tin on my shopping trip to Deland. The reds in the card were a perfect match for the painted tin.
I plan to display this on an easel in the house .  I'll show you that vignette soon. The book page matte turned out well and makes a nice background for the holy card. I like the texture it creates and paper on paper made it easy to assemble. 
The top is finished with some scrap fabric and a vintage earring. I felt it needed a bit more too so I wrapped two twigs in twine. I like how it brings a little nature into the piece. There are trees in the background too of the holy card  illustration. I thought it worked. 

The pearls at the bottom are hand sewn on to a scrap piece of lace. I really like working with found objects, scraps and contrasting textures.

Thanks for visiting!  I can't believe I have rolled over 1000 followers. Look for a giveaway very soon sweet friends. I appreciate your support, follows and comments so much! See my previous post for a quick tutorial on how I made the torn vintage book paper "frame" or matte.  Hope you are having a great weekend.  xoxo
