I have been playing around today - the first time in days that I have had any time to do so - and I have made this Shabby Chic Brooch.
I can't seem to photograph things very well lately - maybe I need a new camera!
I was inspired by seeing Lilla's work so thought I would have a go - but without all her lovely vintage materials she has collected over many years.
I started with a scrap of material - thick cotton and green. I cut two pieces one for the back and one for the front, which I frayed, and bound them together with Bondaweb, and stitched on a brooch pin to the back.
I chose two different scraps of netting - a fine mesh and an open one, and bonded those together, between which I put a piece of thick plastic which came with the decal paper. Using Dry Decal paper from Crafty Computer Papers I printed out an image and it is self adhesive so it stuck really well to the material.
I 'poured' some seed beads in her hair and 'pooled' some Diamond Glaze over them - they look lovely 'in real life' and really catch the light.
I finished it off with two corners of gold mesh (top right and bottom left) - which in the photo, for some reason, look cream!
