I used to make papier mache vases and bowls many moons ago and it`s great to be playing around with papers again, though on a much tinier scale. I`m starting a new collection of papers, keeping interesting scraps of colours and patterns from magazines and gift wrap. I already have a folder full!
I`m really pleased with the way the brooches have turned out, the gloss varnish has transformed them into shiny, bright little pebbles. I`ve already started on a second batch and have been experimenting with making decoupage beads in the same style. It`s so much fun starting a new project! My first batch of butterfly brooches are already available in all my stockists.
