Patchwork/Collage week - Di Oliver

Hi, 
This week will be all about Patchwork and Collage and the team has come up with all sorts of lovely and very different projects for you. 

To start the week, we have guest designer Di Oliver (aka Mrs Tando Creative) with us, with an altered Tando Creative hat she has "patchworked" beautifully.

First let me show you what the hat looks like when you get it.. 

Now for Di's colourful version..... 

 I constructed to top hat as per the instructions.  
I then cut 2" square pieces from various sheets in the Kaisercraft Paper collection.  
I glued the pieces in layers over the hat in a patchwork fashion. 
I painted the Flowers with stems and butterflies, then stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then stroked a small amount of Treasure Gold over the top to pick up the texture in the embossed lettering.  The flowers I glued around the hat and the butterflies have been mounted onto wire and attached to the hat.  The letters have been painted, outlined in black pen and then covered with Crackle accents.
I also punched holes around the rim of the hat and threaded through some thick gold cord

See you tomorrow
