I have a new project to show you, a wall hanging I made using a tin sign I got on clearance from Hobby Lobby. Y'all know how much I *love* stalking the thrift stores and clearance aisles for cheap signs, frames and such to make over and I got lucky finding this tin sign with hooks already attached to the back to hang on the wall. (Longest sentence ever.)
I recently got the "Fashionista" paper pack from Graphic 45 and used that as the inspiration for this project. The biggest reason for starting this project was that I got some new inks that I'd like to use in my Sketchbook Project but since I'm a total ink noob I wanted to practice on something else first. So this thing was inked within an inch of its life. I started by inking these laces pieces my mum-in-law gave me:
|Lace Pieces Pre-Ink|
I ended up using the circle pieces as a stencil with Distress Stickles because they didn't turn out quite right. lol But let me tell you, inks are SO much fun to play with, even if I did end up spraying myself in the face once...okay, twice.
I got lucky with the line of text which I found in one of my old books, "Three maiden ladies who have lived impeccable lives..." Unfortunately I added a layer of beeswax which made the paper transparent so the words are a little harder to read now.
I had a lot of fun on my "Ink Adventure" with these three maiden ladies!
