We felt that the V's next to the door could use a little something extra.

OK, l'il lady: You got some 'splainin' to do. The close up appears to be a piece of wood for the backing, then a piece of metal on which you've mosaiced a beautiful design. It's gorgeous. That whole V thing could take even more, as well as above the door. A decorator's paradise - waiting for more decorations. Lovely.

Hey Slow, I thought of adding more....but didn't want to get carried away.

The decorative cut outs are 2 different thin wooden pieces from Michaels.

The bottom one is painted with Hammered Aluminum paint. The top one is painted with Metallic Sliver Paint.

The red beads are faux pearls. The diamonds at top and bottom are earrings. The red pieces in the middle are from 2 separate pairs of earrings. The red jewels are from a stretchy bracelet.

All the jewelry came from my favorite everything is $1 Jewelry store named Bedazzel. I had to put myself on a Bedazzel budget because it's right in front of the Walmart that I shop at.

Thanks for the compliments.

Love the repeat of the oval shape. You're right, those diamond-shaped areas were just calling for something cool to set them off.

LOL - getting carried away seems to be in my DNA. I never can find a stopping place. You have a good mix of tess, and you used it all beautifully.
