Grateful Wall Hanging

Hello Crafty Friends!

Dana here! I'm back today with a Fall home decor project for you! I used Clear Scraps medium wood pallet (Retangle) you can find it Click Here and Clear Scraps Tall Pumpkin shaker Click Here in addition I used leftover scrapbook papers and Julie Nutting doll stamp and also Clear Scraps Fall sequins Click Here


First off I prepped my wooden pallet with a thick coat of Finnibair Gold Texture Crackle paste. Let dry throughly. Or you may use a heat tool to speed up this process. After drying, I took some Staz-on brown timber ink along with some fall leaves stamps. Stamp randomly along the edge and corners of your pallet. After ink has dried, I took some Prima art alchemy Red Amber wax and rubbed over the crackle/stamped areas with my fingers. This adds a nice shimmer of color. Set pallet aside for now.


Next I stamped my doll onto some watercolor paper using black Staz-on Ink.


After it dries, I colored her hair and skin with Prima watercolor confections. Inked the edges of my doll and cut her out. For her clothes, I stamped them using regular black ink onto pieces of scraps of paper, then cut those out. I used a glue stick to adhere the clothes on my doll. For her boots I added some white confetti to the top of her boots to resemble fur.


Take your pumpkin shaker and paint the top piece with orange acrylic paint and green paint for the stem. I traced the bottom piece of my shaker onto a piece of scrap paper with a pencil. Cut it out. Then adhere your paper with craft glue. Glue the next 2 pieces of your shaker in place. I added some Clear Scraps sequins inside my shaker shape. Take your acrylic piece next and make sure you peel off the protective sheet from both the front and back sides before gluing. Then add the last painted piece on top. Be careful not to shake until it dries throughly. I then wrapped a small piece of twine around my pumpkin shaker stem and glued in place.


Now take a 7 x 6 piece of scrap paper and glue to the middle of your pallet. This will be your background piece. Next I added some foam dots to the back of my doll before adhering it onto my pallet. Next I used a variety of leaves, chipboard stickers, flowers, sentiments and rearranged them onto  my pallet shape. Once you are pleased with their placement, you can adhere them down onto your pallet, using Beacon 3 in 1 Glue. I adhered my shaker pumpkin to the bottom right corner.

Finally I added some Clear Scraps sequins and Prima crystals to finish it off. I added a longer piece of twine to the top back of my pallet so it's ready for hanging!
