I played around with my purchases from the antique mall. And I managed to use nearly every item I bought in one vignette.
This is sort of a boho/vintage style vignette I guess you could say.
I started with the Wenzel vintage box I bought at the same antique mall about a year ago. Then I began building from there.
I knew I wanted to add these feathers to the amber bottles as soon as I saw the bottles at the antique mall. Each bottle was found in a different booth.
Luckily I had the feathers in my craft stash.
When I picked up the little cordial glasses I knew I wanted to use them to put votives in.
The candle votives are a bit bigger than I thought. Maybe I will shave some of the wax off the votives to get them to fit better.
When I began putting this vignette together, I had forgotten about the bottle print on the wall behind it. So that worked out well. A bit of serendipity!
First I added the dough board against the wall. Then I put the bottle of wine corks in front of it and added the plate.
You just add one thing at a time, then step back and see how it looks. Then edit. Adding and editing is half of the fun.
I added the $1 clear insulator and a few things I already had. I made the strand of beads some time ago.
Vignettes are so much fun to create. I like to mix new stuff with old stuff. Also I like things to touch and overlap.
Layering is good because it alters the perception just a bit. Moving something from one place to another changes the whole scope of things. So playing around with your vignette is worth the time it takes.
This vignette took less than 30 minutes to create. And it was made with the odds and ends I found at the antique mall the other day. Plus decor from shopping my apartment.
