Constantly on the prowl for flea market treasures to take home and gift a facelift, I ran across a really plain pair of wood taper holders recently. My avian love affair continues... I used my favorite little bird shapes, some patterned paper scraps and paint to re-do these. I did add a pair of vintage clip on earrings. I removed the clip part and glued the earrings to the bird wings using Aleenes Liquid Fusion.
I also lucked up on a mirror with thick wood sides which I immediately realized would be great for embellishing. I added smaller pieces of trim, purchased at the local home improve store. The trim pieces seperate the coordinating patterned paper pieces added to the frame with Aleenes Paper Glaze. One of my favorite phrases "carpe diem" was added in rub-on letters on the mirror.
