Wooden oval, paint, scrapbook paper (olive spiral on cream), Rub n' Buff gold, Pressed flower stickers (scrapbooking item), 2 part resin, Glue-on bail, Purple leather cord, Olive braided cord, Scrap fabric and silk ribbon for tie, Toggle clasp.
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to use the pressed flowers in a design, and the wooden oval was the best shape. The scrapbook paper made a great background.
What are you most proud of?
The pressed flowers didn't align perfectly at the bottom and the paper showed through, so I painted the area with some dark green, to emulate flowers growing in a field! Looks much better than random spots of the scrapbook paper.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try different items layered together.
