Parisian Gent Fabric Wall Hanging by Lynne Moncrieff


This week I am sharing a fabric wall hanging which incorporates a photo real stamp and Transfer Artist Paper.

When I use fabric in this way, I always aim to re-cycle fabric from around the home, usually from old curtain lining but also cotton sheets are good as well. It is fun to re-cycle and see the cotton fabric transformed once stained and stamped.

Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
Craft Mat 
Mister Bottle
Cotton Fabric
Extras:- Metal Hanger, Lace, Burlap, Re-cycled cardboard (or substitute with Kraft cardstock)

·       I work in a random fashion when staining fabric, as it depends on what I am using to stain the fabric but for re-inkers this is roughly how I go about staining the fabric.
·       Mist the craft mat and fabric with water. Now add the Distress Re-inkers in Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap to the craft mat. Mix with the water and continue to add water to the re-inkers until desired colour and consistency (test on a scrap piece of fabric if unsure). Now take the fabric to the re-inkers. If the colour is too strong at this point, I add water to the fabric, squeezing out any excess colour.
·       Heat set with an iron.
·       Now to stamp the background. Ink up the stamp from Oxford Impressions April In Paris with StazOn Saddle Brown and stamp repeatedly onto the fabric panel. Lay aside.

·       Ink up Speedball brayer with Archival Ink in Sepia, inking up the gentleman stamp. Stamp onto Lesley Riley’s TAP. Follow the instructions to transfer to fabric, I used a piece of the same cotton from the re-cycled curtain lining. Ink edges with StazOn Timber Brown.

·       Stamp label and postage stamp onto paper from re-cycled cardboard (or use Kraft style cardstock). Cut out and layer onto burlap. Attach the stamped label to the burlap with two Tim Holtz Tiny Attachers.
·       To assemble the hanging - adhere Tim Holtz Tissue Tape to top and bottom edge of fabric panel, adding two Tim Holtz Washers to bottom piece of Tissue Tape. Adhere the gentleman image with Gel Medium. Add the label and postage stamp then a piece of crochet style lace to trim the bottom edge of the hanging. Finally attach the panel to a metal hanger.

Until next week.
