#143 - A Toast for Two
"A Toast for Two" is 11" x 14" in size and was meant to create warm thoughts of times spent with great friends. The wine bottle was made primarily from red and white onion skins. The label features real pressed grapes, cora bell leaves and cucumber tendrils. The blue seal was made from dyed straw and the cork from tree bark. The wine glasses were also made from red onion skin and adorned with dyed straw. The table was made from several layers of corn husks. The picture on the wall is a print of one of my original pressed flower pieces. It was framed using browned day lilly leaves. The green background is mulberry paper.
This original piece was sold at the Christkindle Show in Canandaigua. Coasters and trivets featuring this image will be available soon.
