I created this "skellie" brooch from one of my original collages. I used a skull image from a 1901 Cezanne Painting. The crown and bow tie were cut on my Cricut machine. The flower was cut from a plant catalog. I love to collage so I have a big collection of paper images that I play around with until I create a design I like.

I call this "skellie" my "prom king". He has a black with white polka dot bow tie and some kind of flower attached to his orange crown. He is embellished with a red rhinestone.

I used a high quality print of my original collage for the brooch. It is heat laminated with heavy 7 ml lamination film.

You can create your own paper collage and laminate it to make a brooch. If you do not have your own laminator, you can take it to an office supply store like Office Max.

Check out my blog at http://wendylynnspaperwhims.blogspot.com/2012/09/diy-paper-brooch.html/ for more collage brooch designs.
