The image I posted for Nurturing Thursday 100 is a ‘recycled choc~box’ pic. Here it is again, photographed on a spray~ink background, to make it easier to see.
For a such a simple subject it has proved quite tricky to get right ~ particularly when I forgot that I’d crafted a hanging loop on the back and glued the embellishments on sideways. (I’d propped it up to dry and moved on to another project, so it was a couple of weeks before I noticed!)
I was embarassed by this careless mistake but liked the way my original idea had turned out, so I deconstructed and repaired it ~ layering tissue paper over the base to diguise where I’d torn off the shapes, before painting it all again.
I actually prefer this textured finish, so I’m glad I didn’t follow my first instinct and bury it at the bottom of the rubbish bin, never to be mentioned again!
