Hi guys! This is what I have been working on this week! I really like working with vintage tin. I started a couple years ago whe I bought a box that contained a stash of vintage tin can lids and some partially made vintage tin can Christmas ornaments..and off I went. Vintage tin cans were actually tin and much shinier than new "tin cans". This ornament is a fav..I like the folk art vibe.
This year quite a few have a religious style.
This one has a vintage brass hardware bit and an old single mother of pearl earring..I am hoping the "gold" on this earring is brass and not actually gold!
This one is also a fav..I like the pale colors and the vintage pearl beads.
I also used beeswax to seal the images instead of varnish this year. This one has vintage gold mercury glass Christmas beads. I also add tiles of text to some. I believe this one says "adoration".
This one is Saint Rose of Lima,but she has a very "Madonna" look.
I love the shape of this one.....
More vintage pearl beads.. they go well with the old brass.
On this one I used an image from The Graphic's Fairy..a Regency era lady. She had a sassy, daring expression so I added the word "daring" to the ornament. This is feathered brass and feathered, colored tart tin.Very Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy..
