Wall art

Hello there
long time no see... 
I am still around, still crafting
but not many cards at the moment
I have been making wall art for Hannah;s bedroom
Hannah wanted her bedroom decorated in purple
which we have done
 The purple paint did not look so purple in the tin
believe me the darker colour is dark..
it looks rather light and nice in the picture

I even used my spectrum noirs to colour the pull cord purple
to match the wall... 
I have plans on changing the plastic white bit on the end 
to a really nice large purple ball of some kind
so I am on the hunt for something.

 Hannah also wanted some prints on the walls
she has seen a few in b&q but the set she wants will cost me
wait for it.. £200+
So we made a compromise and I said I would make her some
 This is what I came up with. I have made three in total
Paul gave me some off cuts of his MDF
which I covered with wallpaper
 I then used Pauls electric stapler to attatch the cord
above is the back of the wallart
Here is a close up of the flower
I used some stickles in gold on the stamens
not sure it stands out in the picture 
but looks lovely when it is on the wall..

I have also made these two also
here they are up on the wall.. 
Again I used stickles to make them stand out a little..

so that is what I have been up to of late.
I have made some Christmas cards which I am hoping to show later
I have tea to sort then I have time to blog.

Thanks for stopping by and snooping in Hannahs room

Hannah's room is looking super - the wall-art is great.

Had you thought of a furnishing tassel to finish off the pull-cord?
