Hello Everyone! Today's project is 2 small wall hangings that I call "Spring Garden".
I have done alot of different techniques for this project.
So lets get started!
I started with a sizzix die, the Fence. I cut out 6 of them and glued 3 together to get one fence. I made 2 of them. I then painted them with brown paint, added crackle medium and then painted them with ivory acrylic paint. I then inked them with Vintage Photo distress ink. I added twine for the hangers. The chipboard pieces I used came from the Spring Shape Set.
Here is a closer look at the wall hangings in the pictures above. I used several of the shapes for the Spring Shape Set. I used the word Spring, the 2 buckets(small and large), a shovel and hand rake, a boot, the watering jug, several butterflies, birdhouse w/bird and 2 of the flowers on stems. I painted the buckets with gesso, then added crackle medium and then painted them brown. I added twine to the buckets. I painted the flower stems with ivory paint for the flowers and sage green for the stems. I inked them with Victorian Velvet and Forest Moss distress inks. I then added glossy accents to the flower heads. I did the same to the butterflies that I did to the tulips. I used some letter blocks from my stash to spell out "Garden".
Here is a close up of the word "Spring". What I did is painted the word with ivory acrylic paint, then I used my homemade glimmer mist to color it. I used Aged Mahogany distress ink to create the glimmer mist. I then inked it with Victorian Velvet distress ink and then used glossy accents.
Here is a close up of the watering can and the shovel. I painted them both with grey paint adding crackle medium to the can. I also created dirt, by using snow-tex and brown paint. I added that to the bottom of the can, on the shovel, on the buckets and on a few of the slates of the fences.
