Here is my Project that I am WAAAYYYY Excited to Share with You today!

My Handmade Hairpiece
using all sorts of Goodies from Pinque Peacock!

I have been wanting to create some new products for the Pinque Peacock Shop, and this one has been a long time in the making.

I started with a 1/8" plastic headband and some luscious London Blue Crinkle Ribbon from 3 Girl JAM to dress up the white plastic. 

I made a couple of the Splendid Swirl flowers

using the Gorgeous Silk Fabric from the April New Release 

and even was able to create a flower from a few pieces that didn't cut very well when I was making some Fabric Covered Buttons.
I did add a Button to the center of my "oops" flower to dress it up a little.

The peacock feather was created using  a fabulous wood block stamp that my sweet friend and Pinquette sister, Teresa K, gifted me last Christmas.

I stamped the feather using Gold Metallic Dew Drop Ink and some Coordinations Card Stock.  I lighted sprayed some Perfect Pearls Mist over the image to mimic the natural shine that a REAL Peacock Feather has.  I added details using Watercolor and Permanent Whisper Strokes Markers, Folk Art Paints, and some delicate trimming.
The fibers near the paper feather were also left over pieces (trimmings) of the Silk Fabric that I gently pulled apart and placed behind the Splendid Swirl and other Flower.

To give the Adornment Cluster on the Headband added strength, I affixed them to black felt, which was pre-cut into a large flower shape (these are used to create the Pinque Peacock, Layered Garden Beauty Flowers).

I added some Aqua Rhonestones, from Want2Scrap, to jazz up the felt and then added another layer of felt on the underneath portion of the Flower Cluster on the inside of the Hairpiece (headband).

I finished off the piece with Pearl Beaded Stick Pin, also from the New Release this month.
