Altered Pen stand

Hello friends ,

I have here today an altered pen stand  . This Penstand was my sister's sendoff gift she received when she graduated from Agri University .. It was a simple wooden pen stand .
Now she loves my altered works so  much that I decided to alter it and give it to her . So that she will can always cherish her college days and my work too :)

I first applied scrap papers on to the Wooden Pen stand . Then I gave a coat of Gesso on it .

I stuck all the little things I keep collecting  - Buttons, Screws , Bottle caps , broken peices from toys. You can see flowers too . Those are handmade ..

I gave another coat of gesso all over the things stuck to give all a whitewashed look . Then I added peach acrylic colour all over to give it a lovely peachy look. I love peach colour , so does my Sister .

Here you can see paper clip attached to the pen stand. Now this can be used to keep important visiting card or paper pieces . A Multi utility stand .. Yes !!:)
Hope she loves it ..

Thanks for stopping by  :)
