Large wooden block altered

Large wooden block
 Here is my completed wooden block,which I have named "Butterflies and Lace"
I have done the tin foil technique and then painted it over in yellow ochre and burnt sienna and cream acrylics.
A bit of stencilling with black paint.
Rubbed over with Sir Tim Holtz brown ink pad( you know the one i mean,have brain ache atm),to pick up the detail in the foil technique
stamped  watch, wording and an angel on tissue paper,as you can't stamp straight on to the foil.
Lace added around bottom and same brown ink pad rubbed over the top and wiped with wet paint brush.
Matt and layered vintage images on triple embossed card.
Acetate stamped and embossed butterflies.
Embellishments from my broken jewellery stash.
And little brass hooks to hang jewellery from in all 4 sides and on the bottom and large hook to hang it from.
Phew lol


  1. oOh, this block is absolutely beautiful! And what a great idea to make it into something you will use to hang jewelry on!
