January's Challenge has just launched over at Rhedds Creative Spirit as always it is for altered art,recycled/upcycled and mixed media only...definately no papercrafting.
My design team project this month is an Altered Door Hanger...I had bought 4 of them last summer, all 4 are slightly different, with the idea to sand them down and alter them...
I sanded down the front area to remove most of the writing, then covered it with 2 coats of gesso.
I added some texture through a stencil and some strips of washi tape.
For colour I used Inkyliscious Corn Blue colour spray and wiped it across the hanger with a damp sponge then dried it with my heat tool.
With another piece of damp sponge I swiped the hanger with some white acrylic paint, going over any areas that were too white with a baby wipe.
For decoration I used the window frame that's been in my stash for about a year now,lol....( I added a scrap of paper behind the frame )....then added some pieces of a cotton doily and some hessian.
I added the flowers, which I dabbed with Rock Candy, but it dosen't really show up much in the photo above,so I have added a closer shot so you can see the Rock candy on the petals
A couple of stick pins to finish, then I highlighted some areas with platinum gilding wax.
My daughter who was staying with me over christmas has now bagged this hanger....nothing is safe when she is around,lol
