Inspiration Hanging by Alison (Craftytrog)

Hello Stampers! Today I have a piece of hanging art to share with you.
I actually took some step-by-step photos for once! Lol!
Here's what I started with, a piece of corrugated packaging, & some leftover strips from Gelli prints & other projects.
I began by brayering some Snowflake Fresco Finish paint on my packaging. Then I used a mini brayer to apply some colour. As you can see, I used Zesty Zing, Beach Hut & Autumn Fire.
Next, I stamped in a few places, using Calligraphic Mat 11 & Black Archival Ink.
I then used Ranger Glue & Seal Matte to glue down my painty strips, alternating positioning them vertical & horizontal.
I used the Crafter's Workshop stencil, Dina's Mini Boulders, which at the time of writing, is on special offer HERE, & applied Grunge Paste through it.
When the GP was dry, I re-positioned the stencil, & sponged Autumn Fire paint over the top.
I stamped the Journaling Mini Words onto white card, then cut out the words I wanted to use. I used Glue & Seal Matte to attach them to the circles, then added shading to the words & circles, using a black aquarellable pencil.
I inked the edges of my artwork, then matted it onto black card.
I finished by adding some metal eyelets & some ball chain.
Here's my finished hanging again...
Thanks for dropping by,
Alison xxx
