As you know I fell in love with the material of Kaffe Fassett at the Handmade Fair.
What I probably haven’t confessed to is that I’ve been purchasing small pieces of his material with a little project in mind. Although I did confess to the project in my Affordable Art Fair post.
Finally all the pieces have come together. I first practiced with a heart.
Then I sourced the papier mache heads, glue and together with the pieces of material and YouTube, I’ve been busy decoupaging. How fabulous is this method of crafting. For the most part everyone said to use paper and looked at me very oddly when I suggested material. So I wasn’t quite sure what would happen if I used material. In fact I suspect it’s easier as it stretches beautifully around corners and edges.
This fine fellow looks amazing on my living room wall.
But I felt he needed a girlfriend….
