Hey, everybody! Happy Hump Day – I hope you’re having a fantastic week! I’m super stoked to share my debut project as a new Clear Scraps design team member! Oh, the F-U-N I’m having! I’m up on the Clear Scraps blog today with a pretty piece of home decor – a Dream BIG wall hanging (very appropriate for this dream design gig!) created with the Deco Pallet Shape, 5×9 Feathers Layering Stencil, and small Dream Clear Word Title!
I started by sanding and painting the Deco Pallet Shape with white chalk paint. I added feathers randomly over the surface using the 5×9 Feathers Layering Stencil and distress inks, and then stamped clusters of small dots in green ink to fill in blank spaces. I then affixed a green enamel dot to the top of several feathers. I traced the small Dream clear word title backwards onto the back side of a piece of dotted patterned paper and fussy cut it. I painted the Dream word with light teal chalk paint, added whimsical dots and circles with white paint pen and green Sharpie for some interest, and adhered the patterned paper tracing behind it for a shadow effect. I adhered it to the pallet with double-sided foam circles, and then added the BIG stamped portion just beneath it with craft glue. I added white flat-back pearls to the top, bottom and sides of the pallet, and then fashioned a hanger from silver chain and looped green crafting cord through every other chain link.
I created some cute little feather ‘charms’ to dangle from the top left – one silver embossed, one stamped in green and one stamped in teal – and all die cut and layered three times. I punched holes through each charm and added them to several extra chain links.
I fashioned a double-loop bow from teal ribbon which I adhered to the top right with hot glue, and embellished it with a green crafting cord bow and paper flower.
The final addition to the piece was a sentiment stamped in green, die cut and layered on silver foil cardstock, which I adhered to the bottom center with glue.
