Pin cushion-Retro

Welcome to another Blog Hop!
If you have joined in here you will need to start here.

Hi everyone wow its another month flown by! As usual I had much fun creating my Design Team projects for the month of July.
I am loving all the different laser cut from Imagine if!
And this has to be one of my favourites.

A cute little chair covered with a lovely retro paper and an added pin cushion!
I traced all the sections I want to cover with a paper.
 I glued all the pieces together and once dry painted the entire chair black.

And the fun really begins for me when its time to put all the elements together!
so I have inked all the edges with Tim Holtz di stress inks ....Black Soot!
The pin cushion I created a section to fit inside the chair with the same paper line and added a stuffed ball of is a very thick one!

 Finally I added some stickpins which just screams "Halloween!"
