Le Jardin - A Mini Hanging by Lynne Moncrieff


This little hanging is an alternative to sending a card to a friend. I incorporated a piece of driftwood as it was originally gifted to me from a lovely friend who collected it from the seashore near her home in Denmark but you could easily use a piece of doweling or suchlike.

Once again I have made use of PaperArtsy Crunchy Tissue Paper. It is a wonderful stamping surface, adding those extra  little bits here and there.

Oxford Impressions Le Jardin
Speedball Brayer
Archival Ink Jet Black
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Vintage Lace
PaperArtsy Crunchy Tissue Paper
Glossy Cardstock
Silicone Glue
Extras:- lace, x 2 buttons, driftwood, re-cycled corrugated cardboard.


·       Firstly apply PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Vintage Lace to re-cycled corrugated cardboard. Also apply to PaperArtsy Crunchy Tissue Paper. Next apply a wash of Gesso to vintage French book text.

·       Ink up Speedball Brayer with Archival Jet Black ink and stamp the woman from Oxford Impressions’ Le Jardin stamp plate onto glossy cardstock.


·       Now stamp text stamps onto the painted Crunchy Tissue Paper. Tear out.

·       Layer all the prepared pieces along with a torn panel of fabric onto the painted re-cycled corrugated cardboard.

·       Next have fun embellishing the panel with lace and a paper flower.


·       Finally tear fabric into two equal lengths. Stitch two buttons for decorative purposes and then wrap the two pieces of fabric around either end of the driftwood and attach with silicone glue. 

Until next week.
