I hope your weekend is going well.
How are those Christmas preparations going?! 🙂
Thank you all so much for your comments on my last post.
I always enjoy making these hangings as you can use anything to make them up. A great way to use all of those little left overs and scraps.
The base is a piece of ply (an old book cover would work nicely as an alternative), trimmed to size and two holes drilled for the hanging.
I painted the base with a coat of gesso and then randomly painted it with brown and green. When the base was dry I painted it with PVA glue and left it to go tacky. I then painted over the glue with white and lemon coloured paint and left it to dry naturally and let it crack and distress. To finish the base, I gave the edges a good sand down and I added a piece of pretty paper to the reverse side.
All of the embellishments have been attached as seen using Gel Medium. Hot glue or pva would work as well.
