Do What You Can... Wall Hanging - Donna Salazar Designs

Hi everyone!  Today I have another wall hanging to share with you.  I am loving creating these lately... pretty things to hang on the wall.  Hubby isn't too excited a boutme asking for more holes to be drilled though LOL!!

I stamped on this one and used Donna's new Free as a Bird Stamp.  {I know, I'm so brave}, well actually I stamped first onto some watercolour paper from the Mix'd Media Stax and embossed it with Jasmine Mix'd Media Embossing.  It was then glued to the Corrugated Board and the background added around it, so it had a seamless look.

I have used some Golden Fibre Paste over the Corrugated Card to create my 'worn' background, and while wet sprayed it with my favourite SmoochSpritz colour combination; Ice Rink, River Mossy and Caramel Latte.  The Ice Rink adds a gorgeous cool silvery shimmer, River Mossy that fabulous deep teal and the Caramel Latte the fabulous warm contrast needed to give it some life!

Donna's Designer Embellie's Chipboard Swirls from Want2Scrap add interest to the flower clusters.  They were painted white and then spritzed with River Mossy & Caramel Latte SmoochSpritz so they blended with the background.  I also overlayed some of Donna's BYOB also from Want2Scrap, they work beautifully together.

The large flowers were made using Donna's Rose Creations & Grand Peony Die Sets from Spellbinders, and also some smaller ones were created from Donna's Bitty Blossom Die.

I've added some lace and silver trims, some satin and paper roses and finished it off with a quote that called to me, something I have learned this year and reminds me that I have 'enough', and that's all we need.

I hope you are inspired with this, it's hanging in my scrap room making me happy {because Natasha hasn't stolen this one from me... yet} LOL.
