This was an after Christmas find. It has been in my workroom for some time.
I finally decided to give it a shabby chic make over.
I started by painting the entire piece, except the fingerboard, white with Gesso.
Next I used a vintage piece of music from an old book I have to cover the scroll and top face of the violin.
Then I added silver glitter to the strings and around the F holes. Where the fingerboard ends I glued a silver dragonfly from a broken broach.
Added a cluster of white mulberry flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
And cream pearls around the upper edge.
Next I added bits of lace from Tresor Deluxe and a couple of heart shaped rhinestones for a little bling.
