Glimmer Mist holder!

I made this from one of those wooden CD holders. I needed something to put my Glimmer Mist in:) I used white, brown, green and blue paint, ocean netting that I bought from Michaels, Prima flowers and lots of metals. Hope you like!

  1. When I first saw this, I thought it was kind of dark and blande. When I got a closer look I saw how vibrant the colors were on the wood and how diverse the colors were, and I liked it more. Still, if you kind of blur your eyes from a distance, it's a little Dull.

    Also, there's a hint of an ocean theme with the compass/watch thing, and the net, and the color of the cd holder itself, but the flower really sticks out. I know you like flowers, but I think a fake starfish, or an anchor, or something thematic would really bring this piece to life.

    Also, I think the piece needs more contrast. What sticks out the most is the white lady in the upper right - which you probably planned - but the big purple flower doesn't balance it out.

    Still, I really like the ocean coloring that you painted it with, and the stretched net is a great touch. It's a great design, and a really crative approach to an otherwise lame wooden cd holder. :)
