Arty Girlz Challenge #51 Inspired by something in the home

I love this mousemat I designed recently and had printed by bonusprint. I made this paper mache bowl and have been waiting for my new acrylic paints to arrive so I can paint it. I have painted it using antique copper. I designed a backing paper using the motif on the mousemat. I then printed the backing paper onto vellum and then attatched it to the painted paper mache bowl. I added a layer of PVA glue to seal the bowl and then a glaze of varnish. I am not sure if I want to add a chain or not so for the moment here it is without the chain. I am also going to add some pot pourri. Great fun and a big mess doing this challenge!
