Beautiful brooches - upcycling and re-using

Hello and happy Saturday! I'm taking a little break from helping my youngest in his revision for next week's exams and thought I'd do a quick post. Lately my crafting has involved using old found items such as stamps, tickets, fabrics, beads etc and mixing them with colourful felt. Here are my latest creations:

Brooch made with Christmas stamp and bead/button embellishment

Large brooch with a travel theme

Card selection using mixed media
