I have always been rubbish with pictures in the house, I think I am better with displays, probably all those years of doing them in various schools over the years. So, I have had this idea for displaying my collection of insect and reptile brooches, many presents from Marc, for ages, I’ve just never had the wall space …… until now!
The hall in my flat is L shaped, with plenty of space for one set of six Ikea Ribba shadow frames on each branch, if that makes sense …
….. I make no apologies, since moving I have become maddening symmetrical!I used a plain, medium shade of blue card as the background for each set or single insect. I also used E9000 glue to hold the insects in place, as some are quite heavy.
I love all the brooches, but it seems sad to have them in a box in a drawer for the majority of the time, this way I get to see them all the time. The “display” is different, not to everyone’s taste, but very me ……..
