August 18th - Mixed Media Challenge

So I started my experiment for the Mixed Media challenge here.

The challenge stated:-

"Just like a crazy quilt, this challenge is to use a variety of materials, designs & colours to create a unique one-of-a-kind piece.  Step out on a limb, dare to try something new & adventurous."

I started by crocheting a ruffle bib onto a choker wire using vintage embroidery silks.

Then after sewing the ends of the threads in, I decided it needed something extra and I was inspired by peacocks.


And I added some vintage acrylic cabochons that I bought from Etsy whilst someone was having a destash a few months ago and ended up with this!
