Hello, and welcome to some INSPIRATION for Paper Creations Ink’s challenge #22 “Natural Materials (burlap, twine, cork, twigs, leaves, etc.)”!  This challenge will run until Sunday, April 15, 2012 at 6pm CST. And for an added bonus, we will be looking for some works of art to Spotlight! Our Sponsor for this challenge is Shelly’s Images, Shelly (Owner) has so graciously offered a $9.00 Gift Voucher to her online store! Isn’t that an awesome prize for one lucky person?

This is a “Wall Hanging” that I made. The image that was so graciously provide by Shelly, I colored with Prismacolor pencils. I added a tiny black brad for his eye. I sponged “Pool Party” ink around him. I used Spellbinders to cut out the image and the matting. I have used burlap behind my image and then hot glued real bark on here. I tied the burlap around my 3 twigs and hot glued those on too. The BG paper is a tree or bark looking paper from DSWV. I covered a 6×6 piece of chip board and glued the twine to hang it on the wall. I found the butterfly and the swirl in my stash, and thought it looked good on there. What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by today, and thank you for your comments!

  1. That background paper is great, I thought to start it was painted on. The image is lovely too. I love any art work that includes nature, bringing the outdoors indoors.The swirl and butterfly finish it all off perfectly 😀
