1...2...3 an art pin

Here's a quirky little Art Pin I have made using some of my Design Team supplies from
and a few of my other bits and pieces I had floating around in my collection ;)
The Base for the pin is an old wooden domino and that charming gentleman is from Darkroom Door Photo Booth sheet, he is actually with another chap in the photo, but he is easy to separate from the other chap with a pair of scissors making him the perfect size to put on the domino.
The Image & the little hat and word are sealed with modpodge (or pva glue) and then a layer of Royal Coat Dimensional Magic is applied over the top, I love that the little red dots fill up with the dimensional magic, but you can still feel they are hollow.
I used Collections Elements Dictionary Strip in Kraft for the words on the side of the domino and on the wooden tape measure at the top. One Side reads
'Made of unrelated things joined together'
& the other side reads
'objects made of pieces fitted together' :)

I also used ~ a piece of wooden builders ruler, beading wire, seed beads no.5, jump rings, and a vintage typewriter key.

Have a Delightful Week everyone :)
