"Welcome" Wall Hanging

Hello Friends!!
Here is my another post with full of colours. This time I want to make something with flowers, leaves, butterfly, birds & all that which connects to nature! & finally came up with this wall hanging.

Welcome Wall Hanging

Welcome Wall Hanging
I used thick cardboard & corrugated planks from a cardboard carton and glued them together to get a stronger base. Before gluing, punched the cardboard to tie fiber rope with beads to hang it. Covered the entire surface with gesso. Next did some decoupaging with maple leaves decoupage napkins.


Then sprinkled some tiny dots of acrylic colours yellow, orange & crimson.
After preparing the background stuck a bamboo mat border with two woody stems at the top & bottom. These woody stems were collected from my garden & then painted. Added a small bird at the bottom woody stem.


Then started embellishing it with my handmade flowers, punched leaves, some twigs with tiny sparkling thermocol balls. Added small pretty orange berries. The butterfly was hand cut from an old rhyme book, kept safely since my childhood due to its beautiful bright colours J


Making the small maple leaves was another interesting part for which I coloured a white sheet with different colour inks, sprayed some water to let the inks spread & then punched out the leaves.
Lastly went about inking the edges with distress ink gathered twigs.

So this was all, I hope you like it. Eagerly waiting to read your comments, do tell me J

Thanks for visiting!!
Have a wonderful day!!
