Material Brooches.

I go to a fortnightly craft club and we did material brooches with a pin-clip back. I had so much fun I have made quite a few.
I thought they might go well on my stall at the end of March.

A good friend of mine who makes brooches (one of her many creations) gave me ideas.

Triptych ATC Swap on Art 'n' soul Flickr group

Triptych ATC Swap-held on the Art'n'Soul flickr group.

The theme is ALTERED HEADS

31/2" high by 5" wide card, folded to make an ATC with two doors (each 3 1/2" high by 1 1/4" wide) that meet in the middle and open out.
Your details on the back, all other surfaces to be decorated. Must include at least 1 altered head.

I joined in this swap and had great fun doing this, here is my attempt.

Below is the centre of the card, it is a Roger Moor head (James Bond) inserted into the girl with a pearl earring portrait.

This is the front when closed, it is heavily embossed all over.

It is all contained in a little organza bag.
