For a swap on Art and Sassy I altered two wooden spools and made stickpins to coordinate.
I painted the spools with a translucent pearlescent medium for a subtle shimmer. Each spool was wrapped with crocheted or lace trim and ribbon. They were both embellished with paper roses. I added some Distress Stickles to the roses. The top of the left spool has more crocheted trim and the right spool has pleated ribbon on the top. I stuffed the centers of the spools with some foam so the stickpins would have something to grab onto.
Thanks for looking!
Off to create some more!
