    This is gorgeous. Would love to try this, where did you get the Fornasetti clip art from ?

    I absolutely LOVE this! Any idea which chair was used? I didn't find one like it.

    Thanks!

    I can't remember which chair was used unfortunately. It's been quite a while since I made this and I've since given it away.

    Great job! This method could probably be used for many other projects which need decor.
