A little fragile

A last take on the fabuluos mood board at Our Mixed Media Moods. I used the gorgeous deep red, the lead grey, fibres and butterflies. I'm also posting for the Designs By Ryn customer creations challenge and the Craft Stamper Take it Make it challenge (anything with stamping goes). I usually do cards and work in my art journal, but this is a wall hanging (as soon as I find a way to hang it up...)

On Thursday evenings I have a furniture class, where I'm working on fixing an old sofa. The class is tought in secondary school craft classrooms, and I dug into the trash bins in the woodwork room (found some nice square panels) and in the metalwork room, where some students had been practising welding... from trash to treasure that is! I covered the wood with bookpaper and painted over it with acrylic paints (golden quinacridone crimson, magenta and violet) and layered on some fabric and the metal square. These were simply fastened with some small nails.

I stamped the moth (Designs by Ryn) and sentiment (Dina Wakley) with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The moth got some colour with the same acrylics I used in the background. I adhered the sentiment on the side of the panel, kind of as a bonus detail for someone who cares to take a second look at the project. I love the contrast of the fabric and metal!

  1. Hey there Kristiina :) Loved reading about how you saw the beauty in that scrap of metal and saved it from being discarded. It does have great texture to it! Good eye! I also really love the contrast of the feathery edged cloth. It reminds me of Moth wings somehow... Many thanks for continuing to share your art with me :) xo

  2. Love your trash to treasure wall piece! Thanks for playing along at Craft Stamper Take It Make It :)

  3. Fabulous make. Thanks so much for entering the Craft Stamper challenge good luck and we hope to see you again soon. Xx
