Measures 11 X 13 made from Vintage Jewelry Pieces, garden related odds and ends of found objects.
I did a soft wash of gold on the frame, the backing is sand color, at the very top of the tree is a Sunshine Medallion shining.
I layered white lace to form the frame and then braided off white Rick rack to frame the shape in.
For effect I added braided green Rick rack at the bottom for grass.

I have my front porch all decorated in Lady Bugs in the spring and summer, I bought these Lady Bugs years ago and had no clue what to do with them. Thinking I could do something with them for my porch I thought and thought and this is what I came up with.
I basically cut 14" of cotton crocheted lace, ran a gather stitch at the top of lace, when finished I pulled the thread (use a strong thread) until I formed a circle at this point you want to work with it until you get it the position you want. When it is set the way you want it pull threads tight and knot a couple of times.
I then hot glued the Lady Bug.
These are now lining my window sill and they are really a attention getter.
