Paint your Dreams, Mixed Media Wall Hanging by Melina Dahl



It´s Melina here today sharing this wall hanging that I made using the Doodled Shrooms 
stamps set and white/greybard matches.

My steps:

I paint the greyboard matches on the white side using Multi Surface Paints. Not too bothered 
about getting the paint exactly where the details from the stamps are going to be.

I use black Distress Oxide to stamp onto the shapes and then heat emboss the 
image using clear embossing powder.

I find it easier to line up the stamp with the greyboard shape 
by pressing the shape down on the stamp.

I use a white/greyboard panel and start to work on the background. 
I apply That´s Crafty! Texture Paste through stencil TC7015, and then use different 
shades of green Multi Surface Paint and white gesso to paint the panel. 
I also paint two fairy greyboard pieces and glue them down using 
That´s Crafty! Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive.

Before gluing all my pieces down I make some splashes with gesso.
I adhere thread and big art stones to build a ground for the shrooms to stand on.
I stamp the title using part of a stamp from Lynne´s Affirmations Set 4.

I use a white Posca pen to doodle some details on the shrooms. 
At last I make holes in the fairies wings and attach a string and my hanger is finished.

Thank you for stopping by today and hope to see you again next week!
