Creative challenge #63
I just squeaked in under the wire for this week's creative challenge. Although there is no official deadline, new challenges are posted every Monday; and if I'm not done before then, I begin to panic! :) I'm already a few behind because of vacation.
So this week, it was be inspired by pirates! I love pirates--in fact my favorite Disney World ride is Pirates of the Caribbean! I have even been caught singing, "Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life for me!), and not necessarily in the ride!
This pin took me the better part of a week to construct once I had the actual idea. I first drew the rough outline on beading fabric and then fine tuned the picture as I went along. When it was done, I added a thin wash of glue to the back and let it dry. No beads are falling off this baby! Then I glued on the pin back & let that dry. Finally, I added a velour paper backing and once dry, cut around the shape. It is now available in my etsy shop.
Whew! Bring on Monday's challenge-I'm ready!
