The wooden icon holder was dry brushed with white acrylic paint and then I used blue and purple paint to stamp the images. Finally the large design was printed with glue and flakes of glitter were added.
This was how the inside was decorated. I was not sure when I made it what I was going to use it for, but I used blue and purple as I liked those colours best. The workshop included stamping a saying in the centre of the middle panel, but I was not keen on that idea, so did not do it. I hate making things and then not using them, but could not think how I was going to use this project, but thought I might put a photo in it at some time.
Then a couple of weeks later my 3 year old grand-daughter took this photo of me with my grandson. Its fair to say I hate having my photo taken, but I really like this photo and the colour I was wearing just went perfectly with the icon holder.
It now has pride of place on my mantlepiece where I can see it every day.
Not only does Emily take a really good photo, she even manages to make me look thinner. Thanks Emily x
