The day got better

My day did improve...and DH brought supper home so that was even better. I even had some time to try out that tutorial I posted earlier today. This is my version:
Assembled and coated with several coats of gesso.

The final version. I painted three coats of pure gold paint over the gesso and then rubbed a brown glaze into the gold after it had dried. I didn't have Bristol board or even mat board on hand so I used regular old glossy white on one side cardboard. I would prefer a heavier cardboard but this one is sturdy enough for a doll to sit on.
