|Vintage Lady Collage Wall Hanging
I was inspired by the artwork and challenge on Simon Says Stamp and Show. Their challenge was to create a piece with torn edges, distress ink, buttons and wings. What an interesting combo.
My background paper is torn from a damaged book. I folded over the top of the page and stitched it down, leaving room to insert a large popsicle stick. I drilled some holes in the stick and attached some wire and beads for my hanger. It reminds me of a scroll.
My designs were from clipart books and catalogs. I used some distress ink, tore some pieces, bent some edges and left some pieces unglued to create texture and dimension to the piece. I embellished the collage with some of my favorite embellishments. I used six chartreuse buttons, a green gem and a piece of lace-like yarn to bring this paper collage to life!
I'm so pleased with this wall hanging that I will be offering it in my Etsy store.
