What are you most proud of? I like how each piece on the bib compliments the others.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Lay the biggest things out first (not easy on a curved item, by the way). If you use crystal chain, try to lay them on their side so they are seen from the front. Sometimes it helps to put the glue on the item then on the blank, sometimes it works better to put the glue on the blank then add the item. Usually the second way works better with smaller items that you are using to fill in.

I have found myself drawn into this mixed media/collage type style recently...There is a very vintage feel on this one, I really like.

Deceptively easy, too - if you have a base, stuff, and glue, then you are set.
