Hello and Happy New Year to You! We are excited to be back after a good break and today kicks off another year of amazing inspiration from our wonderful team. Jane is here with some inspiring words stamps on a gorgeous wall hanging…
Good morning it’s time to get back to “normal” after all the excitement and celebrations of Christmas and the new year. The Visible Image team have all been on a break but today I’m delighted to be kicking off with the first Design team inspiration post of 2019.
I do love the new year…. I never make resolutions but I do think it’s a good time to take stock of our views and hopes in life. I love the inspiring words that Helen writes which Mark turns into amazing stamps which I can incorporate into my crafting.
I decided to use the words from Voices in your Head to create an inspirational wall hanging for the year.
I made some backgrounds with my small Gelli plate (lucky me got an 8″ by 10″ one from Santa so watch out for more larger projects using this).
I used some DecoArt media acrylics and stamps from the Visometry set
I made a whole batch of prints
and selected 3 to make into ATCs.
I gold embossed the words and added some more patterns with gold ink using universal. Sorry the photos are a little dark, there is so little daylight this time of the year when I am crafting inside.
For the wall hanging I used some corrugated card on mount board. I exposed some of the core and added paints and crackle paint. Once dry I rubbed on some Treasure gold. I attached some string using my mini stapler.
I also stamped the year using the numbers from Alphabetical onto scraps of gelli prints and mounted them on card.
So here is my finished wall hanging..
We were the lucky recipients of this plaque at Christmas! Thank you again Jane it is absolutely gorgeous and very inspiring! We look at it every morning when we arrive in the office!
