A Beginning

I am beginning work on a new wreath.  If you remember from a couple of posts ago, I am in the mood to make an angelic one and this is the lovely lady I chose as the centerpiece.  She has a ceramic head and reminds me a little of Marilyn Monroe.  I think she is probably from the 1950’s or 1960’s.

This assemblage consists of pieces that illustrate what I think the overall palette will be.  I am starting with a 16″ wreath form so this one will be a little larger than usual.  She will have gold tinsel garland as a backdrop.

Even though I have an idea of what colors I want to use when I begin a project, once the actual work starts it seems to take on a life of its own.  I wonder how many of these pieces will actually end up in the wreath?  You may be surprised.

Time to get to work.  I will be sure to show you the end result once it is complete.  Stay tuned!
