Vintage Treasures Wall Hanger

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today I had the pleasure of meeting one of my crafty friends Kath Mucky Paws Halstead who doesn't live too far away from me. We met up for lunch and had a good natter and she is just lovely.

Today Mike and Ian from Kraftyhands have been on Create and Craft with an assortment of the fabulous CD's.  As you all know I work with the boys and look after the design team.  I managed to watch the first half of the show this morning before I went out and they were going through the samples and mentioned me!  I nearly fell of the couch but chuffed to bits :)

This is what I made using the gorgeous Vintage Treasures CD.  I wanted to show crafters not to be afraid to use your CD's for altered art too as they add to your crafting arsenal. I made this wall hanger.


The wall hanger has been painted with Pebeo Acrylic paints, PVA and cream emulsion to get the distressed look.
Around the frame I attached purple ribbon with beads on.
The picture has been printed off from the CD and I added pearl gems and stick pins.
For the hanger I crocheted a braid using lilac ribbon and attached to the back with staples
To finish off I added feathers, lace, roses and a beautiful stick pin.



Thank you for stopping by Today
