A Promise Wall Hanging - Green Tara

Lately I am loving creating these little wall hangings!  They are such fun, just getting to make mess, adding beautiful lace, trims, flowers, chippy... letting it create itself, the process for me is absolute pleasure!

This one was inspired from a saying on a little notebook I was given, it was such a perfect verse.

I used an old vintage doily that my grandmother made as the base, then covered it and the canvas in Golden Fiber Paste.  Then while wet it was sprayed with Smooch Spritz and some LSG Starburst Stains... I love letting it sit overnight and seeing how the colours settled overnight.

Then I created a huge bouquet of lavender, pink and white flowers, all from Green Tara... the tones and shapes all blend together so beautifully.   

Green Tara butterflies were added to flutter all over the hanging...

Bows and Bling...the coloured jute ribbon always ties a perfect bow and the silk flowers with swarovski crystals add such an elegant touch.

...and gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard completes it perfectly.

The chipboard was painted white, spritzed with mixed berries smooch spritz and then finished off with some Fairy Dust glitter {because all good wall hangings need to have some sparkle!}
