Baby Ruby's Wall Hanger

Evening Again Folks,

I know, it's not like me but I'm here again. Just trying to catch up on posting since I was absent for a few days last week.

This time I can bring you the wall hanger made for Sarah's new baby, Ruby.

It's a collage of all sorts of peachy/pinky/creamy/white embellishments on a base of pattern paper on cream card. To give the hanger stability, I've adhered it to, you're probably not going to believe this, a piece of floor tiling - the sort that comes with the adhesive already on the back.

Unfortunately I forgot to note the materials used for this project but I can tell you that the papers are from Prima's Romantique 6x6 paper stack. The image is digital and was, I think, downloaded from the Antique Images blog. I did stamp directly on to the patterned paper with a foliage stamp from the Spring Meadow stamp set from Kanban and Adirondack Peach Bellini ink pad, though it isn't all that clear in the photograph.

I used two sizes of cherry blossom punches to make the flowers - and glitter glue has been applied to the larger flowers on the front. The trims and lace, pearls, etc., are all from my stash.

The August tag is coming along nicely, maybe not quite as Timmy envisaged it but then I'm having to improvise like crazy! I have to confess that, apart from some distress ink pads and alcohol inks, I have not been too interested in acquiring TH goodies - and that's despite admiring his work - but this tag might change all that :)

All day it's been pouring with rain, or maybe I should refer to it as 'liquid sunshine' - it is summer after all :)

Right, back to the tag ... the inks should all be dry now.

Take care and happy crafting,

Hi Elizabeth,

Oh, what a beautiful keepsake for Ruby!! I'm sure Sarah is going to just love it (maybe she has it already since you're posting photos...).

You are one very creative woman!

This is just beautiful for baby Ruby. What a pretty name she has.

I chuckled at the floor tile but it is a serviceable idea. It won't warp or get bendy from hanging!

What a lovely idea, and so pretty :o)

Hi Elizabeth, Julia here from BJ's group. This is a very pretty hanging - love the muted tones and all the elements you've used - I particularly like the flowers you've made - a great feeling of 'shabby chic' going on here I think!

Annie said...

Yet again, you provide inspiration to us all Elizabeth! Obviously I am rather obsessed with all thing baby with my daughter expecting her first in December, o I am thinking I could do something like thi to hang on the babys bedroom wall. And only yesterday my hubby came across some old packs of the vinyl stick-on tiles in the back of the garage, so i'm off to retrieve them!

What a beautiful vintage wall hanging! So feminine! I'll have to remember the floor tile trick. What a great way to add stability!
