HEDGEROW WINDOW DRESSING
As it is the end of Summer and beginning of Autumn, we, at the One Craft Gallery, have gone for a hedgerow countryside theme with briar roses, grasses, seed heads and boughs of greenery. I made the roses from paper, which I painted and then waxed, to give a translucent finish.
My fellow window dresser, jeweller, Caroline Tetley, turned up with half her hedge, which we have hung from various points in the top of the window! We have a feeling that it will dry out and turn brown as the Autumn season develops!
I have just decorated some 'hedgerow' gift bags to go with our theme, using watercolours and felt pens. The gift tags were made from recycled packaging material, and the finishing touch was some self-adhesive glittery dragonflies...
