Bon jour, Mon Amis!
It's been cold and gray here at the chateau, a good excuse to cozy up inside with a cup of hot cocoa and play in my craft room!
So I thought I'd share with you one of my latest projects, a pretty tin cone that I transformed with paint and vintage sheet music.
I neglected to take a photo of the cone before I painted it, but it was a mustardy color ( "mustardy" is a word, isn't it??) and it just didn't have the look I was going for!
Of course I had to use my favorite creamy color, followed by a generous dose of distressing.
I added one of my hand crafted tea dyed tags, that I embellished with a snippet of vintage sheet music, and the sweetest bird image (courtesy of the Graphics Fairy). Isn't that little bird just darling? I really love the colors, and those pretty lilacs. And you know me, I just had to add some glitter for a bit of bling! I tied it on with wonderfully crinkly seam binding in my favorite shade of aqua (love!).
I really love this metal daisy. Isn't it fun?
To the inside of the cone, I added some neat shredded brown paper, and some vintage sheet music.
I had so much fun creating this, and I'm really happy with the end result! I've placed it in my Etsy shop, but I'd love to make one similar to this to keep for myself!
