This is from the deck of a house i used to have in California. I woke up one morning, saw this and got the camera. Tfl! This is a piece of black paper, i put utee and silver embossing powder on . Ide wanted a plain background and was going to put little vintage pictures at the edges. I didnt like the way it looked so put pearlex powders on in blue and purple. More utee. The different colors of metallic paint brushed lightly on including the edges. Gold embossing powder at edges. Antique jewelry at upper left. I dont know what decade this is from,maybe the 20s or 30s, its costume. The blue jay feather is from my yard by the birdbath. Theres a whole family of them who use it all the time. Rhinestone in middle of abalone in lower left is from some trim , also antique. Ab real sparkly rhinestone by it is from a necklace from my sis. The greenish color embossing powder is antiquities verdigris by Ranger. Its real old.
