A Princess Wall Hanging


Happy Thursday all! Today is my day to Showcase over at The Greeting Farm. I am showcasing a recycled project of mine. Ok so I must confess that originally my Princess Anya no.4 was slated for a card but it quickly developed a mind of its own and decided to be something else. I mean, with all the knick-knacks and bobbles I add how could it not? Hehe. So I decided to run with it and create a wall hanging. 


Here are some closeups



On the Wall


You can create your own wall hanging with a recycled chipboard, there's no need to buy wood  if you don't want to. For my base, I used the back of a Bristol pad. I always keep those to re-purpose because it is an extremely thick piece of chipboard. I took extra care in covering the complete board, making sure the corners didn't bulk up.  I used one of my favorite stacks, The Preppy Princess stack from DCWV. I just love the shabby chic feel to it. The colors are soft and it works perfect for little girls projects as well mature women. I also left some space towards the bottom so I can personalize if I need to at a later time. 

Thanks for stopping by!!
