Faux Porcelain Brooch


Hi Everyone, hope you had a great weekend.
Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and Melanie has asked us to use a cricut cut flower for her challenge of April Showers bring May Flowers.
 
I made a brooch ...
 
 
My melt pot eventually arrived so I got to play with my beeswax and UTEE.
The base of the brooch is one of the chipboard shapes that comes with Artiste.
I then cut a circle at 1.75" to fit, inked the edges and melted beeswax over it.
It gives a lovely vintage feel to it.
 
 
I cut a flower at 2.5" from Art Philosophy and leaves from Artiste.
I then melted UTEE in the melt pot and dipped them in it to make faux porcelain leaves and flower.
 
I added blue twine and a brooch fastener and then hot glued everything to the brooch.
Just a pearl flourish to finish.


 
The ladies have some awesome projects to inspire you so do check them out and hope you come and play along.
 
Thanks for looking.

  9. Jayne, this is wonderfully beautiful. I used to use my melting pot a lot but it got pushed in the back of a shelf. Your brooch is just perfect for the challenge and a fantastic little pin to wear.
