I tied knots in a couple of pieces of string and glued them to the corrugated. I painted over them with gold, silver and copper acrylic dabbers. Once dry I applied black to certain areas to highlight. Using a template found on google, I cut the torso shape out of thick card, stuck small nails and shaved pieces of wood to it and covered with tissue paper. Once dry I painted it with bronze eco friendly paint and again used the black to highlight. Attached it to the background between the two pieces of knotted string and added a couple of nails and piece of string to hang.
I covered three pieces of a straw with text paper and painted them silver along with the corrugated. Once dry, I dripped green patina eco friendly paint over the corrugated. I singed a piece of light green organza and using wire I sewed the friendly plastic piece to it. These are the leftover pieces from the key ring and brooch projects. Using silicone glue I attached the organza and friendly plastic and the painted straws to the background. I added a piece of string to hang.
All the items that I've made over the christmas period have been inspired by articles in the following books which I got for christmas:
