This secret has been a long time coming. It was created by going through a long, long process which began with a photo. I used a photo of myself to make a stencil - a photo which I laminated (yes, I own a laminator and his name is Clemence) and then used my craft knife to cut away. I then mixed paints and stenciled onto a piece of card. I used a glue stick and gold leaf to fill in the blank areas, rubbing them to achieve the speckled appearance. The words are printed and glued on. Enjoy!
