Standing Tall

StandTall

You know those long boards that are great for putting hooks on? This is one of those. I turned it into wall art. I’m in love with how this turned out. The DH likes it too. He’s tempted to hang it in the living room. Luckily it’s too small for any of the walls he’s tried it on so I’m keeping this puppy brother for my bedroom gallery wall.

I started by painting the board black around the edges and adding vintage text pages for my background base. Then I did this…

Paints, decorative napkin and Glimmer Mist.

The pink flower center is actually colored hot glue. I used texture mediums to help build the flowers. Inside the center is Black Lava texture… and the white around the center is white opaque flakes… both mediums are from Liquitex. I opted not to use the pewter beads in the very center, add added jute stems with a few glass beads instead.

For adding a soft bit of color on this piece instead of using paints I used pastels.

Whatcha think?
