Vintage Leaves Wall Hanging

Today I want to share the second project from our Quarterly Team meeting yesterday and my favourite from the day although the photos don't do this justice at all. I had a couple of embroidery hoops in my craft room for a while but hadn't settled on what to do with them but at a craft fair a few weeks ago, I picked up a couple of metres of Hessian fabric and the idea for this project began to take shape.


I started by stretching the hessian between the two hoops and then looped some gold cord before glueing to the hessian. I stamped some Vintage Leaves onto Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon and Pumpkin Pie cardstock with Early Expresso Ink.  I used Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder for the Early Expresso leaves.


The acorns are punched from Kraft card and topped with Gold Glimmer card, I seem to be adding gold touches to everything I make at the moment - must be the season. I also gold embossed the quote from Lighthearted Leaves set onto Very Vanilla card and cut out with the window die from the Square Pillow Box set.

The final touch was a loop of Burlap Ribbon tied off with some more gold cord. I just need to find somewhere in my craft room to hang it now.

Here are the supplies I used for this project, if you would like to purchase anything I've used just click on the photo to be taken to my online shop.
