Family Wall Hanger

Hello & Welcome! 

Thanks for joining me for an easy step by step tutorial on my Family Wall hanger. I love how it turned out! I am going to be creating another one for a girlfriend's birthday present. All she will have to do is place a picture of her family on the photo matte. 

So lets get to the tutorial:

Apply a thin but even coat of Multi-Medium with a paint brush to the Ex-Large wooden tag and then place your chosen pattern paper face up. Apply even pressure so that there are no air bubbles caught between the paper and tag.

Using a craft knife and cutting matte, cut away all excess paper. Don't forget about the hole at the top.

I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink using a Ink Blending Tool.
I cut two mattes from the left over pattern paper and two pieces of Old Letter design pattern paper. I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink using a Ink Blending Tool. I also cut two pieces of cardboard smaller than the photo mattes.

The cardboard is placed under the mattes to give depth and dimension. I tucked in the Old Letters between the photo mattes and have them angled out the right hand side.

I selected my chipboard embellishments - This was the hardest part- so many possibilities!

I cut the small Vintage Oval Mirror Fancy frame into pieces, as I want to tuck these into the layers of the photo matte.

I used an Embossing Dauber to coat the chipboard embellishments, sprinkled with Fran-tage Embossing Powder, tapped off the excess powder and heat set each piece.

I used Multi-Medium to adhere the chipboard elements to my wall hanger. I placed my picture down first as the key overlaps it and added four copper mini brads to the key hole before gluing.

I picked out my flowers and also adhered these with Multi-Medium.

All finished!
