Here is the finished piece. I added a silver pre-fab cross I purchased at Hobby Lobby for the finishing touch.
If you ever watch "What Not to Wear" on TLC, the designers often reference that your outfits should have color, pattern, texture, and shine. I think this is a good reference for home decor projects as well.
Ignore the ugly lamp int he foreground! That will soon be replaced, stay tuned for a fun lamp shade project!
The crosses have color (robin's egg blue), pattern (faux leopard), texture (solid blue cross with the pattern created with varnish, as well as the dimension of the multiple crosses), and shine (the final silver cross.)
Here is the step by step on how it was done!
