Wall Hanging! - January 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit
Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Blog!
This week I have a sweet little wall hanging for you made with this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit, the stencil from this month’s Mixed Media Kit, and some items from my stash.
I used two of the black chipboard pieces from this month’s kit as the base for this wall hanging, then added my textures and decorations. Check out how I did it in the video!Video:
As you saw in the video, getting my chain idea to work out was the hardest part! Fortunately I keep the clear, sturdy packaging around when I get items; you just never know when that might come in handy!
I just used two sheets of the Simple Stories paper from this month’s kit on my base; one with a phrase, and one with a butterfly print. After I had these glued down, it was time to get my modeling paste on. The “Sterling Silver” modeling paste (TCW) that came in the (I think) May Mixed Media Kit was the perfect color to go with this month’s Simple Stories papers and the chain I had decided to use.
I layered my flowers and stickers -- some from the sheet, some from the layered package – and tucked them in around my photo. I found that the center of my Tim Holtz “Weathered Clock” Bigz Die was the perfect size for my photo, and it gave me a “rough” edge that I thought just fit better with the muted, more vintage tones of the paper pack.
My stenciling was added randomly – where I felt it should go – but I was careful not to cover up the phrase or too many of the butterflies! I added some flower cluster on the left panel, as well as some of the butterfly stickers. On the right panel I added a large phrase sticker and a couple of smaller, layered stickers. I even tucked on one of the resin pieces to give emphasis to the “best ever” phrase.
I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch my holes and add my eyelets, and added some jump rings I repurposed from an old “worthless” chain I’ve had for years so I’d have something to attach my main chain on.
