Still Hanging Around!

Art 2

I find honesty is the best policy!

To be frank I am sure you would have guessed that I did n't get around to clearing my craft table after finishing the bean tin ... but I thought I would fess up anyway!

I am kind of glad that I did n't! I started playing Art 5 with the grunge paper scraps rather than tidying them away [as you do] and things kind of escalated from there.

I made nine grunge papers patches and joined them together with jump rings ... finally I finished off with a cute little hanger.

The inspiration came from Wendy Vecchi again ... The crafting god that is Tim - his patchwork and finally the very clever Claudine who used the jump ring technique for an online class.

Where would I be without these wonderful people, their fabulous products and their amazing inspiration!

This is a wonderful piece Linda. LOVE the butterfly and the flower at the base...infact there are so many oooooooo's and ahhhhhh's! A very successful hanging and a perfect 'partner' for your stunningly transformed bean tin.

I haven't even seen Grungepaper let alone tried anything with it - is it just thinner than Grunge board?

AngelaC said...

I'm the same about not clearing away too... the only problem is when I have so much stuff on my table that I only have a tiny corner left to work in!!! I love this hanging Linda - fabulous work! The colours are so bright and cheerful, and the whole piece is very Wendy Vecchi! Wonderful.
