Sweet Christmas Wall Hanging

 More Mixed Media  have just launched their last challenge for this year.

I hope that a few of you will pop along and join us, there is a prize on offer, so well worth having a look.

Always Mixed Media, but with an optional colour twist. This month the colour option is WHITE.

My project for the design team is this pretty wall hanging...I just love this stamp from a set by Artistic Outpost, the little girls face is stunning. I just tinted her lip slightly and also her hair as I felt it really didn't need "colouring in"
I cut the base in very thick white card and went over it with a couple of stamps, fir sprigs and fir cone.
I layered up a piece of muslin and then some green & gold mesh.
Using some white fancy wool ( love the fibres ) I wound some around the base before adding the 2 decorative pieces to the both sides of the image, then added the image to the hanging.
I punched 2 holes at the top and used the same thread to hang it with, also added 2 snowflakes brads to the points on the hanging.
Finally I finished it by adding 2 die cut reindeer.
Do pop over and join us if you can find us here at 

I am entering my project in to these great challenges...

Christmas or Anything Goes....

 Hello Everyone, I hope everyone is well and keeping safe from the Covid Virus. Lockdown should have given me an incentive to create more, but family issues have prevented me recently.

It is my theme choice for the Tag Tuesday fortnightly challenge, I had originally chosen "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas", then had 2nd thoughts, thinking it was too early, so decided to go with "Anything Goes"....but seeing so many folk have bought Christmas forward by a few weeks by putting up their christmas trees and decorations, I thought why not go with both here we are.

My Christmas Tag...

A pretty vintage style christmas stamp that I layered up and added some sparkle to the little girls hood and hand muffs...adding extra sparkle with the silver mesh and glitter on the flower.

My Anything Goes Tags

These super tags are made from MDF and all I did was ink them up, then added the stamped images. I used a spray varnish to bring them up to a nice sheen, which also enhanced the colour.

I hope to see you over at Tag Tuesday and join in with our challenge..looking forward to seeing you...x
