Marie Antoinette meets Frida Kahlo

Here are two of the items i may send off as submissions for publication

The first one is one that i had already made, but i added further embellishments to.

A lot of the detail is hard to see, such as the handsewn tiny pearls on the silk ribbon roses. I'm not sure if this is an improvement or not, its just that Marie Antoinette was known for extravagant tastes, and i've tried to depict this.

The second one, an ATC, is similar to one that i have already made, but different lol.

Again, you cannot see the tiny seed pearls that i have hand sewn all along the bottom lace, and also the stuck on diamond gems along the frame of the picture.

I'm humming and haaaa'ing about whether to continue to make the third item, a fan, or not.
In fact i've given myself until Thursday to make my mind up about sending them off.

I also finished today another felt pin, this time a circular shape, with a picture of Frida Kahlo done with the acrylic gel transfer onto fabric method.

These pieces are all brilliant. Your Frida would look great on the back of a flattened silver ladle/large soup spoon with a mirror on the other side. Someone just shared a how to on making 'vanity' cutlery :) Your Marie are so sumptuous and fantastic too.
