Here is my entry! Let me explain it to ya! I first started out making a collage. Then, I scanned the collage into the computer and printed it out on t-shirt transfer paper. After I ironed it on the shirt, I cut it into a crown shape and sewed it onto two pieces of felt. I crazy stiched the heck out of it, and added the lace tie. Then I watched some House MD and added the beads.

I forgot to flip the picture before I printed it out on the t-shirt transfer paper... so it came out backwards. I kinda liked the way it came out tho, so happy accident! YAY!

I like to work in different medias when I craft or make art. I think I'm  a mixed-media craftster... so why not proclaim myself the queen? haha! Although I do think that's a bit narcissistic. haha!


check out a close-up of the  crown-front.
this be a close-up of the crown-back.
and this my lovelies, is a close-up of the collage.

I'll take an action shot as soon as I get ready for the day. haha. I'm still in my pj's.

ETA- ACTION SHOT

Girl, you ROCK! You sure are a queen when it comes to crafting, so you might as well just make yourself a crown. And wear it with pride!

Kudos, cause this just made my day!
