This stated out as a book LOL once I made the the front it
it became a face and there was no room for the hole shesh.
So I decided I had to attach it differently sooooo
I used tea dyed gauze and some bamboo sticks from my DS
garden. Glued them all together to create a wall hanging.
I had put gesso on all the coasters then just edged the
back with Tom's tea dye. Stamped them with leaves.
Then I used some lovely paper bags I got in England,
they give you the most beautiful paper bags in the stores,
They don't in Canada, you can iron them on cloth and
the print will transfer to the material.
I ripped all the paper and edged it with the tea stain ink.
I had ripped up a tag, I had been using when stamping
the coasters. I thought I would make pockets with them,
ooops I had glued them right to the coasters, so I used
clear plastic for the pockets for the tags. The tags I had
there was a few words on them so I added my sentiments
in pen to go with what was written on them. One I used
some sticky letters, edged all around them with the tea stain
then removed the letters, love how that turned out.
Well now I have a wall hanging for EARTH DAY.
Lots of pics again and long post:):)
If your still here :) thanks for looking and have a wonderful
