Hope Wallhanger

This wallhanger was actually inspired by the “Wizard of Oz” and the scene in the Poppy Field 🙂

Zu diesem Wallhanger wurde ich durch den “Zauberer von Oz” und die Szene im Mohnfeld inspiriert 🙂

*Hope Wallhanger*

“We must hurry and get back to the road of yellow brick” symbolizes the Key for Hope for me. The girls must hurry back to the road of art, light and music etc.

Supplies: eMOTions Paper by Nat Kalbach, Vintage Wire Hanger, Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Back Canvas, Liquitex Clear Gesso, Eco Green Crafts Acrylic Paints , Eco Green Crafts Paris Trunk Dye Inks, Oil Pastels, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Ranger’s Grungeboard, Tattered Angels Crepe, My Little Shoebox Letter Stickers, Crafty Secret Fairy Sheet, SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES by 3L™.

Techniques: I used clear gesso on the sticky back canvas and added texture to it with a comb and an old small lid. After it dried I used Eco Green Craft Acrylic Paint – thinned down and added it to several spots, after dried I used the Dye Inks. For the Grungeboard Circles I used a mixture of Dye Inks and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and adhered them to the canvas. I fringed the edges of the canvas and applied the piece to the eMOTions Paper, added some of the words and painted lightly poppy petals around the grungeboard circles. I sprayed the Crepe Ribbon with Glimmer Mist and ruffled it in a way that the girls mounted on Foam Pads would look as standing on it. After applying the Letters and attaching the folded grungeboard wings I sprayed over the surface again with Tattered Angels Golden Glimmer Mist to unify the look.

    Awesome message…I love it!
    Funny that I did an art journal page today that had the characters from The Wizard of Oz on it.
    The crepe ribbon is super cool as a “carpet” to support the girls.
