Altered pin board

I've been working on this board for a couple of weeks. I needed something on which to display the felt flower brooches that I make. I am going to a Flower themed fair on September 16th and wanted to show them off to the best advantage.

I painted the wood with Stewart Gill pearlised paint, then stamped with purple Stazon and then coloured the images withSakura pens. The pink lining material is stitched onto quilting batting and then glued onto the board with fabric glue, I pinned it down while waiting for the glue to dry. Then I glued on the silver braid which I found in my stash. And finally glued on the little paper flowers, not sure if they will survive transportation but they look pretty.
The felt flowers stick in through the quilting batting and seem to stay on quite well. The little flowers at the bottom are made from Hearty air dry clay and are just for fun, hopefully some children will buy them as they wont be very expensive.


  1. Oh, aren't they lovely?! Thanks for adding the close up of the pink one - the detail of the beading is just beautiful.

    Best of luck with the fair!

  2. These brooches are Fab Janice. Hope you do well at the craft fair with them x
