Mixed media wall hanging

Good morning everyone!

The other day I watched a video by 
Limor Webber,
 that she did for Prima on Ustream.

She altered a cigar box lid.

She did a couple of techniques I hadn't done before so I wanted to try them!

and I was determined to do some layering in a way that I usually don't do!
I have so much trouble covering up lower levels!

I started with a cigar lid,
painted it with gesso,
and then
covered it with a piece of paper from Prima's Romantique collection.

From there I used inks, sprays, alcohol inks, 
modeling paste, heavy gel, 
more gesso, black paint, antique mod podge, 
several masks and a variety of stamps.

I don't remember using so much on one project.....
what fun I had!

Then came the layering 
(covering up of everything I had just done...
the hard part for me)!

Starting with the tag that I made with a piece of an old folder.
I painted it with a gel paint, inked it, then stamped it.
I also added a bit of modeling paste to the top.

I didn't hide as much of my tag as Limor did hers
 but I think I did pretty good layering more than I usually do!

Below are a few close ups of the texture I added 
and the goodies I layered on top!

Love that cute little owl!

Also like the look of the light bulb with alcohol ink dripped on the back.

The butterfly has been sitting on my desk for a while now.....
I smudged one wing when I glossy accented it a while back!
And that would be the reason I tucked it under the folded flower!

Don't you love it when hiding a flaw works out so well?

I used pop dots on the tag,
can't do anything without them!

Below is the hanger I made for it.....

Thanks for stopping by!

Please feel free to leave a comment,
I would love to hear from you!

Have a great weekend!
