The Brooch for October

Hello friends and welcome here!
On the PA challenge blog, this fortnight topic18 is 'Wearable Art'.
My entry was late because I had to think about making.
Then I decided to make the Brooch for October!!

First I used shrink plastic, it was cut into 12 cm diameter and sanded by sanding block.

I stamped Darcy's tree EDY 06 by Potting Soil Archival. When it dried I was colored in pastel lightly.

It was placed on a toaster that was laid cooking sheet, then I was heated for about 2 minutes. The circle about 40 % shrank and the color was slightly darker.
I was layout some laces, thread and beads to the circle Then I was using Glossy Accents ( I ordered a Resin to Amazon but not coming yet... ) in place other than laces, and I've put it overnight.

This is the back side. I painted white gesso 3 times and stamped Lin's love birds
ELB 21.  Finally I attached the pin.

Thank you so much stopping by. Have a wonderful days.
