Starting from the bottom picture here are your wood pieces, I just had my husband cut 4 " wide by 10" inches tall and the base is 5 x 6. Sand and paint black or any other darker color you like.
Glue heavy duty foil to cardstock evenly and trim to fit. Measure and cut 4 equal pieces. One p[iece of copper foil (same size) lightweight) Emboss all with a pleasing design.I used my little cuttlebug.
color with tim holtz alcohol inks(4 different colors.
Leave a 3/8 inch border and lay your centerpiece first and then begin to lay pieces of metal, images, and copper any way that pleases youj , It will stick nicely with Tacky or even elmers glue. decorate around the pieces and images and add a votive or LCD candle to the front of your piece.
I hope you enjoy this tutorial and there is enought left of the metal foil to go around the base and do a block also. ( Of the original pieces)

The obelisk is 4 1/2 foot tall, my son in law made it out of sheet metal and it contains around 5000 pieces of tile and glass. The wall was done with china, tile and some stained glass. The teapot is a silver teapot that I bought at a flea market and added the small tile to it. The buffet top is one that I did on an unpainted buffet. The mannequin head is partially done on screen , the hat part and is removable. This is a few of the things available to picture taking today, it is damp and chilly , windy and even a little raony here in WI. Hope you enjoy looking at my stuff.
