For a Pearly Queen

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today is the day to remind you of that 

PEARLS

themed challenge at the 


and here is my inspirational piece

but before I move on let me remind you of that prize 


you have until the

29th November @ 5pm to enter
so do hope you will join us.

so here is my piece
I got this at the Doncaster Dome a while ago and just never got around to doing anything with it, but felt now the time was right so I gave it a couple of coats of gesso, some old stash papers and then added all my gorgeous Hobby House embellishments, including those fabulous string PEARLS :)

here are some more photo's for you on close up
I used the pearl strings around the bottom piece, and also the top and bottom of the top piece and also around the top.  There was a pattern on the lid which lent itself so well to the pearl flourish flowers and then I just added some of those gorgeous roses and some rose leaves and a little tag.

I cut the pearl flourishes up into sections to fit.

They did not quite meet up in the middle at the back but not to obviously wrong, I thought was okay.

 Those Hobby House products for you
