Hi and Hello to all…Today I am sharing a fun little project for the September Moodboard Challenge at Dusty Attic. Using four different sizes from the Tag Medley sheet, I created this wall Hanging with the cutest little Gnomes!
Although there is a lot going on on the Tags, the treatment of the chipboard is not that complicated. I covered the Tags with two papers from 49 & Market’s Vintage Artistry Essentials collection, Savor and Essence. I inked the edges with Potting Soil Archival Ink ~lol, no that was not purposely, totally coincidentally~, and Vintage Antiquing Paste from Stamperia.
I gesso’d all the Chipboards. On the Vase, Juliette Balcony and Inside piece of the Brick Window, I applied white cackling paste. Once it was dried and crackled I panted them with Ivory and Cappuccino Allegro Paint also from Stamperia. I once again used the Antiquing Paste to bring out the cracks and add an aging effect to the pieces.
I painted some Antiquing Paste onto the raw Bicycle Chain chipboard. I glued a piece of acetate to the back of the windows and colored it with Cappuccino Glitter Accents and Rose Gold Metallic Alloy Alcohol inks from Couture Creations.
The Grasses and Mini Foliage were all painted with Ivory, Cappuccino and Earth Paints. I also embossed them with an Irredesant Sparkle embossing powder. The gorgeous Moon was covered with Gold River Leafing from Mont Marte…Just love how beautiful it looks!The two adorable Gnomes were painted using a Watercolor set from 13@rts. I sadly did not take a side view photo to show all the layering that was done! Even the Beards of the Gnomes are layered. I added Flowers, Rub-on Transfers and Wishing Bubbles and Trinkets from Vintage Artistry Essentials as well.
