New Brooches

Quick Tutorial
I started with some wooden heart shapes and my stash of gorgeous papers
Pick out some interesting papers and draw around the heart and cut out
then cut out a contrasting colour of paper for the bottom half of the heart (or the top if you prefer)

add a flower cut from one of the papers

along with a word or words cut from old books then coat with gel medium to protect papers

paint the back of the brooches

use inks to distress the edges of the brooches

and they're now ready for the pins to be glued on and for sale at Indigo Moon

....Another room almost finished at the Armoury, we now have a proper living room, just a few bits to tidy up which we'll get on with tomorrow (in between a picnic up at the Castle!!)
