Hey there Southern Ridge Trading Company fans, Katelyn here. Recently it seems as if I've been creating home decor projects and my creation for today definitely falls into the category. I created a beautiful Family wall hanging for you, that's perfect to hang on a wall or add in as part of an everyday home decor piece. Read below as I share with you how I transformed my chipboard pieces to create my Family Wall Hanging.
To start, you'll need one of the Mini Dress Form Charms. Apply two coats of Walnut Stain Distress Paint to the dress form. Set aside to dry.
Take one of the Drifting Feathers out of the package. Apply two coats of Vintage Photo Distress Paint to the feather. Once the Vintage Photo paint has dried, apply a light coat of Tarnished Brass Distress Paint overtop of the entire feather. Allow the paint to dry. After the paint has dried, start by going around the edges of the feather with the Vintage Photo Distress Crayon, rub the wax from the crayon in with your finger. Once the Vintage Photo crayon has dried on the feather, take the Walnut Stain Distress Crayon and go around the edges of the feather also, rub the wax from the crayon in with your finger.
Next, you'll need the Oval Leaf Die. Apply two coats of Worn Lipstick Distress Paint to the Oval Leaf Die. Once the paint has dried, take a Vintage Photo Distress Crayon and go around the edges of the Oval Leaf Die, rub the wax from the crayon in with your finger. Set piece aside.
Cut a 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of the Honeycomb Pattern chipboard. Apply two coats of Antique Linen Distress Paint to the honeycomb pattern. With the paint dry, apply the Antique Linen Distress Crayon to the honeycomb pattern, rub the wax from the crayon in with your finger. Once the Antique Linen crayon wax has dried, apply the Vintage Photo Distress Crayon to the honeycomb pattern, rub the wax from the crayon in with your finger.
From the Pussy Willows Chipboard, pull out with the three pussy willow piece. Apply two coats of Peeled Paint Distress Paint to the pussy willow piece. Once the paint has dried, using both the Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain Distress Crayon, apply the crayons to the pussy willow piece. Rub the wax from the crayon in with your finger.
Pull out the Family Fun Word chipboard piece. Start by covering the entire word with Antique Linen Distress Paint. Once the Antique Linen paint has dried, using a paint brush, apply two coats of Victorian Velvet Distress Paint to the bottom portion of the word. After the paint has dried, use the Vintage Photo Distress Crayon and go around the entire word. Rub the wax from the crayon in with your finger.
The last two pieces of chipboard that you'll need to paint are two butterflies from the Butterfly Mix chipboard, pick whichever two you desire. Apply two coats of Victorian Velvet Distress Paint to each butterfly. After the paint has dried, apply the Victorian Velvet Distress Crayon to parts of the butterfly, rub the wax from the crayon in with your finger.
The last chipboard piece you need is the small Vintage Oval Mirror Plain frame. Apply Emboss It Ink to the entire surface of the vintage oval mirror frame. With the ink on the frame, sprinkle Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder over the entire surface of the frame. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with your heat tool. Once the frame has been embossed, let cool for a couple of minutes.
Using a 2 1/2" Stitched Oval, die cut the stitched oval out of patterned paper. Ink the edges of the stitched oval using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Take a plain white doily and ink the outside edges of the doily using Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Now I have some tips and tricks for adhering your wall hanging together. To start, you'll want to adhere your patterned paper to your canvas. Once the patterned paper has been adhered, adhere the Oval Leaf die to the middle of the patterned paper.
In the middle of the wall hanging, you'll adhere the doily, stitched oval, honeycomb pattern and the small oval frame. Once those elements have been adhered, adhere your brown, pink, light pink and white roses as desired in the top left hand corner. I found it was easiest to place the butterfly in the top left corner and then adhered it once I was happy with the placement of the Family word.
In the bottom right hand side of the wall hanging, you'll adhere the feather, pussy willow and dress form together. To add some extra interest I added a brown twine bow at the bottom of the feather and pussy willow. Adhere your brown, pink, light pink and white roses in the bottom right hand corner before adhering the feather, pussy willow and dress form element. Next, adhere the family word to the middle of the frame. With the word adhered, adhere the other butterfly in the right hand corner. After the Family word has been adhered, adhere the top left butterfly slightly onto the "F".
