{Mixed Media Tutorial} Wall Hanging by MariLynn



Hello, Happy New Year 2018. I hope that this year brings you blessings and that you have lots of opportunity to make art. I am going to share with you a project that I made.
It is a wall hanging. 



I started with a little wooden circle.

I cut a piece of designer paper to match the circle's size and cut it out and glued it to the wooden circle. Don't you like the vintage look of this paper?




I then used the STAMPlorations set called  TRENDY BUTTERFLIES to stamp butterflies and a sentiment onto the circle.

I really wanted the butterflies and sentiment to stand out so I outlined them with a black ink pen.



I used gold metallic rub and ARTplorations stencil called

I used a hot glue gun to glue little white pearls around the edge of the circle. Then I took some white netting and tied it in the center making it like a bow. I then hot glued the netting to the back of the circle.


 I had a pile of used tea bags that I had cut apart and dried. I folded them into triangles.

 I tucked the folded tea bags between the wooden circle and the netting.

I glued  a clothespin to the back of the circle and I also added a length of twine with a little plastic key.

Here is the finished project.
