Paper doll dispay.

Take a peek at how I altered this 7Gypsy vintage ticket holder. First I stated by painting it in an off white color and then I did a crackle finish. I also mixed a little bit of Gesso with water to create a Gesso wash, I used that to tone down the metal a bit. I embellished it in white, I figure that can go with just about any season. I plan on changing it often, maybe with my favorite ATCs, tickets or ephemera. But, I think these paper dolls look just darling.
If you like to take a closer look, check out my YOU TUBE on it.
