The Wall Panel: Construction Phase

IMG_2748wallpanel6editedsized_thumb2

I have a collection of what I call “gold embellishments”.  Most are scrapbooking elements.  I also use gold escutcheons ( keyhole cover) and other gold embellishments.  On this wall panel, I used Jolee’s Boutique scrapbooking elements called Leaf Flourish 2 and two larger wood elements that I found at Michael’s.  The wall panels and wainscoting panels are made out of Resin and are made by Lawbre.  I don’t believe they make the large panels I used anymore but the wainscoting is still readily available.  The crown molding I used at the top is Lawbre also.  I ended up using another molding at top of crown molding called egg and dart and I used that on the base board at the bottom to give the piece continuity.  The columns are flat resin pieces found at a miniature mail order shop.  I also used two basic wood miniature shutters on the bottom of the columns to continue them to the floor.  The baseboard for this panel are just two pieces of miniature baseboard glued one on top of the other.  I covered all the seams between the components with miniature 1/4 inch chair railing and used the same chair railing to connect the flourishes on both large panels.  I glued everything in stages and made sure things dried in between.  The picture above shows what it looked like after gluing all the pieces.  All of these components were glued on to a 22inch x 28inch trifold foam presentation board.  The finished panel measures 15 1/2 inches X 18 1/2 inches.

Stay tuned tomorrow for The Wall Panel:  The painting phase…..
