Hi everybody! Leslie here, sharing my debut project as a new design team member! I'm so stoked to have been invited to join the Clear Scraps DT - this is definitely a dream come true for this gal! So my first project is a Dream BIG wall hanging (very appropriate for this dream design gig!) created with the Deco Pallet Shape, 5x9 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 5x9 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 a 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.
