Dream Mixed Media Wall Hanging by Melina Dahl

11:00

Hello!

It´s Melina here, and today I have a mixed media wall hanging to share with you.

I started with a 6x6” white/greyboard panel and used modeling paste through the Dream stencil (ws005). One of the large greyboard cogs got a bit of modeling paste through one of the Dinky stencils (tc031). I picked some small and large greyboard feathers and covered all my pieces with a coat of white gesso. I made marks on the large feathers using the tip of my spatula. 






I painted the cog and large feathers with charcoal shimmer paint and then wiped some of it off again with a baby wipe.

On the panel I used Turquoise, Orange, Purple and Charcoal Shimmer Paints. I sprayed with water so they would blend a little. 






The small feathers I painted with Pale Gold Shimmer Paint and once dry I stamped on them with gray ink using the feather stamp from Textures Stamps set 1.

On the large feathers I used the same colours as on the panel and made some marks and patterns. 





I used Pale Gold Shimmer Paint on some spots on the cog, and after that I started to assemble the dreamcatcher. I used gold coloured wire to attach the big feathers, and multi purpose craft adhesive to glue the small feathers down. I tied silk ribbon to the lower parts of the cog and one small piece under the feather on the top. I also added some lace ribbons. 






I stamped on the panel with some different stamps from Textures stamp set 1 and then added quite a lot of white gesso on the panel. 






I was not really happy with the lack of contrast between the panel and the dreamcatcher, so I used black gesso around the edges of the cog. From cutting the silk ribbon I got many silk threads that I added to the panel under the cog.

I glued my dreamcatcher to the panel and my little dreamy wall hanging was ready!








I used:

That's Crafty! Stencils - Word Series ws005, Dinky tc031
That's Crafty! Shimmer Paints - Turquoise, Orange, Purple, Charcoal, Pale Gold
Wire, Ribbon and Lace

Thanks for stopping by today!
