Wall Decor and Card Gift

Hello everyone! Jenn here today sharing a fun 8X8 inch wall hanging and a card to match! This set was designed as a gift to give to someone special. Using the ‘Woodland Stories’ papers along with bright beautiful Little Birdie handmade flowers is sure to brighten anyone’s day!

The canvas was covered in a ‘wood-look’ paper, then a sheet of the 6″X6″ in blue. I added some bits of crackle paste in white and some splatters of coordinating colored acrylic paints. (yellow, white, teal). Fussy cuts from the 12″X12″ papers and flowers were layered at different levels to create dimension

White gesso was lightly brushed on all of the flowers.

The card measures 5″X7″ and was created with an ivory card base and papers from both the 12″X12″ and 6″X6″ Woodland Stories paper packs.

Here are some close-up images at the canvas and those beautiful handmade flowers!

Upcycled Plank Wall Decor- ‘Life is Beautiful’

I had an old plank which I wanted to upcycle rather than throwing in the dump. I started by giving it a coat of white gesso and used Mont Marte modelling paste and different stencils from my stash to give a background to my plank.

I added colors in yellow and pink for my background and watered them down, for this I have used Archival Multi-surface paints Pink Swirl and Dandelion.

I created embellishments out of Mont Marte modelling paste since I didn’t have any clay in my stash. I added the modelling paste to my mould and let it dry completely. It only took couple of hours for it to dry since I stay in a tropical place. Depending on where you stay these modelling paste embellishments can dry up in few hours or few days.

I gave a coat of gesso first and colored the embellishments with chalk paint Misty Rose and watered it down. Then I used tinted metallic paint – Golden Glaze to highlight the textures and high points

I fussy cut some elements from the Little Birdie Shabby Chic Bouquet paper pack

I used some leaf die cuts and colored them with the help for water brush with alcohol ink Paprika and Citron Breeze and distress ink Picked Raspberry from my stash.

I made a composition of all my embellishments, leaves, Little Birdie fussy cut elements and flowers from Celebrate Life collection- Celestina, Amica, Agnes in pink and white Elira and Deborah. I added some micro beads with the help of soft gel and added a sentiment “Life is Beautiful” from a stamp set from Little Birdie sentiment stamps.

I hope you liked my upcycle project and will give it a try. Use code Sumedha5 for an additional 5% discount if you want to buy products used here.
