Today I am sharing a sweet wall hanging I have created for the Paper Rose Design Team.
I started with a base of chipboard which I cut out in a banner shape with my scroll saw
& drilled some holes for hanging.
I applied a sheet of specialty paper in pink tones
from the Dream in Pastel Paper Pack with Matte gel medium.
Sanding around the edges made it blend to the base shape perfectly.
The Madison Lace die cut from the same paper was applied to the top of the banner in the same way.
Adhesive hessian sheet was cut slightly larger in the same tag shape & applied.
White crackle paste was applied randomly in areas & left to dry naturally.
A layered mask stamping technique was used to stamp the patterns
on the largest stitched banner from the Banner 2 die set.
Cut from light blue tones of the Dream in Pastel Paper Pack.
I planned out the placement of the stamps on the banner before I began.
Seeing where the images would overlap.
I stamped the main focal images of the birds & bow on acetate first in Archival Ink
then cut these out to make masks for later use.
I worked from foreground to background by stamping the main focal images first.
I then used the masks I made previously to protect these images
while I stamped the flowers & the text.
This layering makes these other images recede into the background.
I used various Archival Ink colours for the different layers like the text & flower centres.
I then coloured the stamped images with the subtle application of Jane Davenport Pastels
applied with a fine brush applicator. Love the translucent affect.
I lifted this stamped layer to just sit up from the hessian surface.
Finishing off with Prima Denim Rosettes, leaves & ribbon.
Fabric covered wire, shaped into a hanger, swipes of white gesso & a rub of vintage photo distress ink over the crackle edges complete this project.
Hope this gives you some inspiration to create a gift for a friend
using these beautiful stamps from Paper Rose.
Cheers for now
