Make bloom for beauty

A while ago I found a white frame at the Red Cross second hand store, and figured it would work fine for a painting of some sort. I also found some floral candle cuffs in another second hand store.

Then I created something out of my second hand findings...

I made the background out of cardboard that I still had left from my moving boxes. (I moved here some weeks ago.) I painted the cardboard with white and silver acrylic paint. To finish it up, I painted a layer with some metallic sand saint in white/silver. 

Here you can see the painting in my living room. :) I think it matches the other colours well.

Ps. I have submitted this project to:
