Some older works

The brown tray again was mahogany and a similar process was done as the black one, only I stippled on a paint effect this time and used a different napkin.
The vase or utilty holder was a bargain from a charity shop and looked a bit boring just plain, so I chose a napkin and added it to the piece to give it some character.
This tray was originally a mahogany coloured tray
Not being a lover of mahogany(sorry for all of you that do ) I decided to alter it.It was sanded down to bare wood,painted with gold,then painted with crackle glaze and over painted with black. I then varnished it twice and then added the napkin art or otherwise known as decoupage. Red,gold and black is such a sexy combination of colours and I love poppies. After another couple of coats of varnish,this project was finished. I hang it on a wall above a door frame in my kitchen.
