Baby Boy Wall Hanging

Welcome back!  I sat down a few days ago to make something for a friends upcoming baby shower.  And wouldn't you know it, a case of scrapper's block.  Happens to the best of us, right?  Took me quite a bit longer than I expected, but I think the end product turned out just fine.

So let's get started on how this adorable wall hanging was created.  I started with a piece of acrylic which I colored with Kurecolor Ink in Dull Blue.

Next, I outlined the edges of the acrylic with a Painty FX pen in white.  Set the acrylic page aside for a couple minutes at this point to let the paint dry.

Next up, I created some background texture.  I added a piece of Punchinella, some doilies, baker's twine, and letter beads. Easy peasy so far, right?

Then I simply stamped a baby image on white cardstock and colored the diaper with my Zig Brushables pen in Pure Yellow.  Then, to add just a bit of glimmer, I went over the yellow with a Wink of Stella pen in Glitter Yellow. I outlined the edges of the cardstock with a Fabricolor pen in Cobalt Blue. Then I adhered the layers of cardstock and patterned paper together using my Zig 2 Way Glue pen.

Now, it's just a matter of adding the finishing touches. I attached the stamped piece using a mini clothes pin.  Lastly, I added some flowers, a butterfly charm, and some ribbon so the piece can be hung.

So now you have an adorable addition to a baby shower gift.
