This is a very organic hanger. I used a real leaf, a leaf rubbing, wire, cardboard,ribbon, tissue paper, paint, ink, and my favourite new ingredient: medical self-adhesive fabric!
I cannot stress enough how much I love texture! Anything that gives depth and character to something, or even someone, just seems to breathe life into it.
|I be-leaf. Do you be-leaf?
|I like the tie-dyed effect of the paints on the self-adhesive fabric. I let those results dictate the direction I was going with the project.|
|This leaf fell into my hand, complaining that it felt naked. “Nothing a little glitter glue can’t fix!”, I sweetly replied.|
|The pattern in the stamping around the perimeter of the card stock (invitation) was achieved by dabbing Walnut ink with a paper towel.|
|I made it with/without the celadon green pearl brads. The centre leaf piece was achieved by creating a ‘nest’ of wire in which to house the leaf stems and then I used clear glue for adhesion.
|Like I said, it’s a motley crew of participants, but they played very well together:)|
