While in St.Jacobs, we stopped at Market Road Antiques. I found these in one of the little booths - they're old milk bottle caps. Don't you just love the typography?
I thought I could make a little art project for the kitchen with these caps. All I needed was some double-sided tape from the Dollar Store and a Ribba frame from Ikea. Removing the mat from the frame, I lined the frame with some polka-dot scrapbooking paper and figured out the layout and arrangement of the caps. I put a piece of double-sided tape on the back of each cap; the tape is about 1/8" thick and provides a slight relief or raise of the cap from the surface.
Its a small detail but adds a bit of interest to the art. Can you see how the caps have slight shadows in certain light?
And here's the finished art "in situ". A little vintage pop of colour in the kitchen!
