Create From Your Soul Wall Hanging with Cathy Potosky

It's July and the sun is shining and making me melty if I go outside! So I'll turn on my little fan and stay in my craft room.

I am in the process of reorganizing my craft room, and the space in front of my desk is blank! Thanks to some great pieces from SRTC, I now have something to fill that space and inspire me!

This project is very simple, but I just fell in love with the chipboard piece "Create from your soul". I also love shimmer so I painted all my pieces with the Finnabair Art Alchemy Paints. The chipboard takes this paint so beautifully, it's amazing.

I wanted to keep most of my purple shimmer but to tone it down just a bit, so I just used my finger and rubbed some Finnabair Amethyst Magic Wax randomly over my piece. I love the effect I got with it.

While the wax dried a bit I painted the Pearl Strings with my Finnabair paints and did the strand with TH Distress Crayon in Brushed Pewter.

I put these pieces aside and gessoed a piece of wood that I had in my stash using the thick Black Gesso from Finnabair and then sponged and stenciled using TH Brushed Pewter Paint.

Once that was dry (and paint takes a long time to dry when it's crazy hot in my room) I attached my chipboard with Glossy Accents.

I am so happy with this one, simple, shimmery and will be a nice reminder on my wall. And seriously, the Pearl Strings...I will need to order more!! I want those strings on everything! In every colour!
