Today I would like to share a hanging I made:
My hanging is a 6x6 piece of mountboard. I started by covering the mountboard with a piece of BoBunny newsprint paper. I then added Paperartsy Fresco paint with a babywipe - I used Eggplant, French Roast and South Pacific. I chose these colours as they are all translucent and would allow the newsprint to show through. Next I added Grunge Paste mixed with French Roast and Mocha Mousse through a SplodgeAway stencil. I created peaks on the Grunge Paste with my spatula to add further texture. Next I took the cog stencil, also from SplodgeAway, and used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to create the cog background. On a separate piece of card I stamped the sentiment in black versafine ink, I tore this and then inked with Vintage Photo and Tattered Rose distress.
I stamped the image of the clock/lady three times onto card. I cut one out in full and coloured using distress inks. I cut the wings from the second image and coloured with distress inks, I curled the wings and added them to the first image. On the third image I just cut the clock face out, coloured with distress and mounted onto the base image using foam pads. I added glossy accents to the clock face to make it look it look like glass. All the stamps were from the Paperartsy Ink and Dog ID10 plate. Next I added two eyelets to the mountboard, curled some wire around a paintbrush add added it through the eyelets. I then added the sentiment and the clock to the hanging. I used Treasure Gold White Fire to highlight most of the hanging - it was added to the Grunge Paste, around the edges of the mountboard, on the wings of the butterflies and around the sentiment.
