I created this "skellie" brooch from one of my original collages. I used a skull image from a 1901 Cezanne Painting. The crown and bow tie were cut on my Cricut machine. The flower was cut from a plant catalog. I love to collage so I have a big collection of paper images that I play around with until I create a design I like.

I call this "skellie" my "prom king". He has a black with white polka dot bow tie and some kind of flower attached to his orange crown. He is embellished with a red rhinestone.

I used a high quality print of my original collage for the brooch. It is heat laminated with heavy 7 ml lamination film.

You can create your own paper collage and laminate it to make a brooch. If you do not have your own laminator, you can take it to an office supply store like Office Max. If you do not want to make your own brooch, this brooch is available in my Etsy Store.
I really like that, sort of imagery that would look cool up-scaled to be an iron on transfer would have that on a t-shirt less likely to loose it then :)
thanks for the compliment and advice...i will look into making larger images that could be used on a larger scale!
