Faith wall hanging with Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with a mixed media project using the "Faith " stencil by Clear Scraps.   Just using the supplies, I had on hand, it was fun to create this wall hanging,as a special reminder, to keep the "faith".

The background was created using a gel press and acrylic paints on a 6" X 12" piece of canvas.  After the background was good and dry. the stencil was placed over the background print and using StazOn ink the word "faith" was added.  Highlights were added, with acrylic paint, to each letter.   The canvas was attached to a stick (from the yard). Again just using what is available to me :)

Fancy trim and lace were glued to the bottom, of the canvas, along with a cluster of buttons.   A ribbon stringer was created, for the side, and tied to the top of the stick with hemp twine.  More buttons added also.  This would also look great hanging from a door knob or vintage cloths hanger.  Clear Scraps has twelve word stencils, that would make beautiful home decor projects.

Thanks for stopping by~
