Snowflake stars

Just before Christmas wonderful mum and I (I hate typing that.  I know it's grammatically correct but I just don't like it) went to a craft session at Debbie Bryan.  It was just titled "snowflakes" and I suppose you would call it mixed media.  As usual there was a constant flow of coffee and cake.  Steph, the tutor from The Bead Shop Nottingham was there too (as a participant) and we had a great time.


We were given a bag with three different plain wooden snowflakes in it (one of them is technically a star) along with some small pieces of wood and the acrylic centre to the top snowflake.  The blanks have holes drilled in them so you can stitch on them.  We were let loose with paint, stamps, embroidery floss and our imaginations.


It was a really windy day when we took these photos, so I couldn't capture it very well.  The middle snowflake has buttons sewn on one side, the star is laced with bronze metallic floss and there are 4 little arrows tied on to the bottom below the last star (one under the other).  It is all joined together with the bronze thread.  

I probably should have taken some close up pictures!
