Handmade Poppy Picture

I wanted a picture to hang in the spare bedroom.  I looked for ages and not really wanting to spend too much money I never found what I wanted.   On a trip to a charity shop, quite a while ago, I found this mans shirt.  Seriously it was a mans shirt not a ladies.  It was very faded when I bought it.  I just liked the poppies on it.

I fixed it onto a piece of scrap MDF using Pinflairs book binding glue.  When it was dry I covered it in serviette craft glue/varnish.   This was the finished result.

Normally these colours would be too bright for me.  The spare room has white walls and the colour scheme is shades of pale blue  so it works quite well.

Best wishes Florence.
