Shabby Chic Hangers

Hey all, just thought I would pop in and share some of my recent projects with you ...

Last week Artistic Creationz's mojo challenge was to make or create something that you could hang from a safety pin.  This is my take on the challenge.

After I finished these, I was inspired to create some more and I got to thinking about altering some Tim Holtz Ornate plates....

Soooooo I took one (or three) of these and gave them a few coats of gesso so that it looked like this...

I added some Adirondack Pink Sherbert Alcohol ink.....
........and another light layer of gesso which I just dabbed on with a stipple brush

Once all of this dried it was time to add some vintage images and all the pretty stuff!!

 This last frame below, I wanted something a little different so I added a layer of Yellow Pink acrylic paint instead.

 Thanks for taking the time to come check out my shabby chic hangers....

Much love and blessings 
....till next time

  1. You do come up with such unique ideas?! The vintage images (think I have said before) are glorious & look so at home in yr projects. I actually have many images that I buy when on sale but never know what to do with them? They'll probably end up on a card which is ok... Bit boring & inspiring tho. These ideas are really cool. Off to have a think... I could be some time.. Tfs :))

  2. Very impressive! Thanks for sharing. Hugs, A.
