Wall Hanging by Eileen Bellomo


Masonite board, 5x5”
Patterned paper, 5x5”, soft blue and pink floral
White gesso
Paint brush
Flower rubber stamps
Light blue acrylic paint
Paper towel
PID collage images – sheets 578, 581, 582, 583
German scrap – pink foil
¼”light green grosgrain ribbon long enough to wrap around board
Assorted ribbon scraps
Scrap lace, scrap netting
Prima small flowers
Glue – Ranger Glossy Accents
Sakura Jelly Roll Pen, Clear Star
Colored flat rhinestones
Hooks for hanging

Directions:

Glue patterned paper to board. Apply gesso to rubber stamps with brush and stamp randomly on paper. Allow to dry thoroughly.

Paint over entire paper with light blue acrylic. Immediately wipe off with slightly dampened paper towel. The flowers made with the gesso will reappear. Wipe as much or as little of the paint off the rest of the paper as you like.

Glue the egg images, collage style to the bottom of the piece. Attach the girl image so it appears the eggs are behind her. Embellish her skirt with some scraps of ribbon and lace.

Attach a piece of scrap netting across the bottom of the piece, partially covering the eggs.

Glue the German scrap pink foil around the perimeter of the piece. Glue the grosgrain ribbon around the outside edge of the board to finish it off.

Embellish some of the stamped flowers with the rhinestones. Attach the small flowers in the girl’s hands and basket, allow a few to “fall” to the ground. Use Sakura pen to highlight the flower centers.

Attach hangers to the back of the board. Tie scrap ribbon to them to create loop.

So sweet -- she's a little like a 3-Dimensional paper doll, isn't she? I love the way you decorated her with bits of fabric, sequins and flowers. Adorable.
