Totally dig how an upcycled curtain tie back complete with tassle, vintage lace, a used wooden heart frame, and a couple of vintage hankies came together to make a cool angel! I also ventured into something new...painting on glass! The tassle is for our current challenge over at LESSology! Hope you get a chance to play along! All this upcycling is really quite addicting!
That little shimmery angel head used to be a light bulb. I really had been trying to find a spray paint that was opalescent and kept coming up short.
I did find a glass paint that had that shimmer I wanted so I painted the light bulb and baked it using the instructions on the bottle. I am loving the color! I did add a little gold spray paint to match the frame. And to think I was just going to throw out that little bulb...It's held in place with some hardware epoxied to a dowel.
Check out the texture on that frame.
I embossed a little foil tape, added it to my frame and then painted over it. Really love that look!
You can see behind the angel is some material. Since I cut the hankie in half, I was able to use the other half as a backing on the frame. The wings are a wood applique I purchased from Wood & What-Knots of Character. They got inked up and then I added some glitter! The wings were the only new things I used besides those Petaloo flowers. Love Petaloo flowers and their velvet leaves!
Loving this piece! Hope you get a chance to make something & hang with us over at LESSology!
