Adding to the range
Always up for a challenge, I decided to look at producing a mixed media wall hanging incorporating a charm, as is usual, in my work.
I've been a fan of mixed media collage for a very long time. Playing with different textures and combination of colours to develop a design is quite therapeutic and the end result is tactile and unique.
My first wall hanging took on an Autumnal theme in dark green, rich browns and oranges and featured a mini silver coloured metal fox charm. My second has the theme of underwater, using a little fish charm as inspiration.
Hangings comprise of three sections, joined by trim and have a twig, taken from the hazel in our garden, to complete the hanging.
The lady on Facebook certainly liked the hangings, but it wasn't the "picture" she was suggesting. Time to experiment further ....
Here is my first one - am so pleased with how it looks (very difficult to photograph though - still experimenting with that). I've have white painted frames and natural frames with a light grey wash ready to use and am loving making these for the shop.
The box frames can be wall hung or free standing. Just imagine how sweet this would look in a special garden house retreat or seaside beach hut.
