First up, Yvonne  upcycled a free pin badge!

“…. glue some old book paper onto a pin badge, gesso  it and mist in pink and green. Add somepunchinella and embellishments from the cool and applause worthy mixed media kits... then seal everything with Glossy Accents.  and set aside to dry!”  EASY PEASY!!!
