I'm stuck at home today, I have some long over due repairs to the roof of the house that needed attention and so today's the daythe workmen are here. Now when I say stuck, I don't really mean that in a bad way, I'm just not at the shop so I thought I would take advantage of my free time and get creative. I have quite a few projects that have been started so this was the perfect opportunity to finish at least one.
This one is a wooden cake standy/styly doo daddy storage thingy that I figured I might use to stand my Colorwash and Perfect Pearl mists on.
I had painted it a few weeks ago with Claudine Hellmuth's Studio paints so today was all about decoration. I wanted it to to be attractive but didn't want to overload it with stuff as it is going to be a working item rather than something that will just sit and look pretty.
My favourite ribbon of the moment brown gingham seems to just go with everything and I do still have a bit of a love affair with chain so I knew I was going to use both of these but didn't really know what else I was going to do so it was a case of getting out my Tim Holtz Idea-ology stash and fiddling around to see what worked.
I screwed some screw eyes under the top tier so that I could dangle my chain and simply added some of my Ideaology stash to each screw eye.
Tissue tape around the sides before more Idea-ology and hey presto it's done!
Think I'm off to do a spot of journaling now.
