Mini portraits

I found these metal portraits at an estate sale.  They are from Italy, and came glued to a velvet backing inside an ornate gilt frame.  They are reproductions of Italian masters work. 

I wanted something gold and pretty to surround it with.  I had this gold tulle I removed from the ballerina doll, and thought it would be perfect to accentuate the portrait. 

I glued it to the back and love the look of it.  You could get a similar look by downloading some portraits from the internet and putting them in those cute ornate little mini frames.

Your tree must be so elegant looking with all these treasures you are making. And, speaking of portraits, I love that I can see you taking the picture in the reflection of the ornament next to your featured piece.
