Wall Hanging

Hey gang, I am here Today with a fun project using a page from the 6 x 6 scallop wooden book to make a wall hanging.  I think these pages are the perfect size to make a wall hanging with. What,  I just love is that each book comes with 4 pages. So, you could make 4 wall hangings from one book. Can you say lots of BANG for your buck!!! OH YEAH!

My wall hanging is called memento’s of the heart. The first thing I did was use the gelli art printing plate to do my back ground. I love you do not have to prep these books before you get busy creating with them. I also used Dad’s tie 6 x 6 stencil on the gelli art printing plate. I tend to stick with 3 colors on the gelli art printing plate. Then I moved on to adding some collage elements. You want to create movement with the pieces so I add in 3′s more the most part. I then drew out my gal on paper and painted her then adding her to scallop page. You could just paint her right on but I never have luck with that so I do it this way. I then added my words. Then the fun part comes with adding in little details. I used a regular Bic pen, gel pens, and a black colored pencil. Oh and some washi tape. Gosh…I love that stuff!  Once, I was happy with it, I sealed it all with a matt finish.  Used some string, lace and a twig to make a hanger. Cheap, cute and FUN gift!
