I made this for a one to one swap with Burn, through the PaperPlay forum. They are large chipboard jigsaw shaped pieces approx 5" x 7". Burn decided on a vintage theme.
Firstly I gesso'd the background then applied a few colours of pan pastel, added a napkin using mod podge and when dry stamped script over it. I found a lovely image and arranged hessian, jute scrim, fibres and lace. I cut a flower from T!m's tattered floral dies in a cream fabric and added a vintage button, skeleton leaf and gem pearls. A strip of fabric was coloured with distressed stain and heated slightly so it singed, I tied it in a bow and attached a mini pin and a word charm faith. I added beads to a long pin and placed it in the hessian, a cluster gem and a key. The top looked a little bare, so I coloured a grungeboard flourish and added some small pearl gems.
The PanPastel challenge blog theme this week is 'add a flower', so I am entering my jigsaw piece.
