I liked the birds I’d been making for cards so much that I made a brooch.
I coloured a piece of calico with Dylusions inks and acrylic paints. I added more layers and texture using Stewart Gill fabric paints and stamping with Archival Jet Black Ink and backed it with some vilene using bondaweb.
I used my sewing machine to edge the pieces, made legs with jewellery wire (24 gauge), backed the whole thing with a piece of fabric, added an eye, beak and a brooch back and have been wearing him on my green coat ever since.
And look here are some friends of his that are works in progress….
