Hello Hanging

Hi All,

Debs here with a small wall hanging. Journaling doesn't have to be in a book, it can be on any surface you want it to be, and I was perusing around The Artistic Stamper, picking up some of the new Dylusions Paints - which are just amazing, if you haven't already tried them, you really should!! When I saw this little hanging board, it jumped into my basket honest it really jumped!! Here is what happened when I quite literally had a "light bulb moment"!!!
Take one Papier Mache Hanging

Paint some gesso to cover

With a brayed lightly add Postbox Red Dylusions paint, ensuring you start at an edge makes things easier and work the brayer in all directions



Followed by Lemon Zest Yellow Dylusions

Followed by London Blue


Followed by Fresh Lime 


Using white Dylusions paint stamp using the new "Decay" stamps from The Artistic Stamper, I used my finger to apply the paint to the stamp, which worked quite well.


Then I added some random stamping with Archival Jet black, and then stamped and embossed the large light bulb stamp, added some yellow paint round the inside edge.  Added the hello stamp from the Jounaling words 4 Set. I decided to try out the new Ranger embossing dabber to make the light bulb 'shine'.  Popped some Distress paint in pewter to the bayonet.  Then added some white pen to the dotty border stamp and the New Decay spiral.
