Life is a Journey wall hanging

Hello, crafty friends! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a funky mixed media piece created with the Art Textures, Big Art Textures, Writing Backgrounds and Kind Words stamp sets. This is my last post for Paper Wings Productions and I wanted to create something really neat! Life is definitely a journey and we need to make the most of it! I'd like to thank Carrie and the rest of the design team for having me along this term. I've thoroughly enjoyed myself!


I started with a 5x5 Gessobord and then added a torn piece of corrugated paper, a piece of fabric mesh and a rusted metal heart attached to a swivel clasp. I applied some crackle paste as well as some distress grit paste with a stencil. From there, I added an assortment of gears, charms, a book clip, buttons, beads, flowers,  and sea glass, and then covered everything in white gesso. Several of the items were repurposed- the fabric mesh, a pop-top and a hard plastic ring. Then came the fun part of inking it up with red, pink, orange and yellow India inks, spritzing with water and letting it run. I rubbed gold acrylic paint over all the surfaces and then I did some random stamping with black StazOn ink. I splattered watered-down white Gesso over the entire piece with a fan brush.


The final step was adding the pieces of paper straws, the sentiment and the twine for hanging. I'm really happy with how this turned out!
