Finally connected blog to FB - it's all like navigating through a foreign land with a little bit of the language. I am getting ready to finally open my Etsy shop - this is a prototype pin I created using "fabric paper" that I made a la Beryl Taylor. I am a detail person - so I love creating small stuff. I collaged on the pin with mesh, gold leaf, machine stitching and added paint and other goodies. Hard to see in the pictures but lots of high gloss lacquer gives the pin shine and durability. This one I am keeping - the others are a little different. Hope to have the Etsy thing ready soon. Thanks for taking a look.
