I had very shabby chic holder in mind and at this stage I planned to give it a coat of gesso  or a nice white wash and then add some very bright cabbage roses on top,that is the reason for the texture strip ! It didn't look that good So PLAN CHANGED !

 LSG sprays gave very nice shimmer to the holder ,I went on adding various colors to bring out the textures.Highlighted  using pearl paint .

I didn't want to add any embellishments and let the texture shine :)

But still it needed something to cover the grainy texture strip at Top.I used dry twigs from a creeper to make the word "SAVE" .
