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.
