Here are the steps:
I gathered buttons, wooden spools, old keys (my local hardware store will often donate keys), small tiles from a backsplash, wing nuts and tiny clothes pins. The possibilities are endless.
A frame is added with a marker and a wide brush is used to add a thick layer of white glue.
Arrange the objects in the glue and gently shake the colored sand onto the background before that glue dries.
This project is a good lesson in conveying the meaning of background and foreground.
