A couple of posts ago, I showed you a few pictures of starting points for 4 new wreaths. I thought it might be interesting to show you the finished products as compared to where they began.
I usually come up with a so-called “statement” piece or two as a jumping off point for me in the creative process. As I have said before, the end result is often a bit of a departure from what my original vision was. They just seem to evolve that way.
Let’s start with this one:
A beautiful German wax angel, a Fontanini cherub, and a Jewelbrite. Here is the finished wreath, “Angel Blue.”
I love how she turned out – so beautiful and serene.
Let’s move to the second wreath:
This one started with the shabby-chic vintage pink dove and a huge magenta Poland teardrop ornament. I was in the mood to make a soft pink wreath that day.
This is how “Pink Dove”turned out:
In reality, the colors are softer than they appear in this picture. These are some details:
Next up is the wreath with the sea colors. Remember this?
Here comes the finished wreath, “Sea Green.”
If you look really hard, you will see that I did not end up using the blue ball with the dots on it. A case where my original vision just did not end up panning out.
And last but not least, do you remember this one? The metal peacock?
Wait until you see how this one turned out. I named it “Pretty as a Peacock.”
Quite a transformation, isn’t it? No shy violets here.
I will be packing all these babies up tomorrow to take with me to the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio. We leave Wednesday! I hope to see you there!
And I hope you enjoyed a look at how my process evolves.
