Take flight week - Gio

Another very different approach from Gio for our Take Flight week: A lovely Scrapbooking "hanging" sample. Love how she altered the hanger too. 
What do you think?

 For the wooden hangers: I painted with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints: Nougat, when dry I stamped randomly using Ranger Archival Ink pad: Coffee and Crafty Individuals CI-382 - 'Love Lovely Life'. I cut a heart from a piece of copper metal and I embossed using as "embossing folder" a Crafty Individuals mask: Magic roundabout. I glued to the back 4 chipboard Tando Creative: Steampunk Wings and Cogs covered with gold paint. I added a metallic chain.

For the LO : I cut two squares of natural calico, and I sprayed with water. I sprayed some Cosmic Shimmer Mister: rich gold and Dylusions ink spray: Melted chocolate. To tone down the color I used a little amount of PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints: Nougat with a paintbrush. When dry I got a shimmering , worn look. I added some gesso to the lower part of the fabric and I stamped twice using Ranger Archival Ink pad: Coffee and Crafty Individuals CI-382 - 'Love Lovely Life'. 


I stamped on a piece of gessoed book page three times the bird from Crafty Individuals CI-375 - 'Jolly Robin' and Ranger Archival Ink pad: Jet Black. I added some colors to it with Distress Inks. I coloured the picture printed from PC with Distress Inks. I sewn with the sewing machine the two squares and glued the picture and the birds to the fabric. 
I hand stitched some beads. 
I attached the Fabric to the wooden hangers.

Material used:
Crafty Individuals CI-382 - 'Love Lovely Life'
Crafty Individuals CI-375 - 'Jolly Robin'
