Assemblage art doll wall hanging.

I have been using more of my scrap wood pieces and have made another Mixed Media wall hanging or alternatively this one could be called an assemblage art doll.  I made this using Helmar glues, scrap wood and some of my hand rolled paper beads for the arms and legs. I am enjoying reusing wood that was only going into my wood fire. A friends son makes wooden stair cases and gave us bags of off cuts, that is only waste for them. So he gave them to us for our wood fire. Makes me smile to think what people would think of what is being made from the off cuts from their staircases.

First I sanded my wood pieces then painted them with DecoArt Gesso then a layer of  Deep Burgundy acrylic paint.  The music paper was applied using Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste. I also like to type up a quote on my typewriter and add it to the sides just to add a bit of interest.

Using some Helmar Tacky Craft Glue I made some paper beads to use for my arms and legs.

Wall Hanging...

Today on the Helmar blog I am showing all the details on how I made a Mixed Media Wall Hanging. 
I had some scrap pieces of wood given to us to burn in our wood fire. As soon as I saw them though I thought I can make some wall hangings with those. So grabbed a pile of them and they are all on my desk the perfect little size for all sorts of projects that will come over the next few months.

I really enjoyed doing this project lots of techniques but just on a small scale. Got to love the DecoArt Media crackle glaze texture and that Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots  is the just the ticket for getting things to sit up with dimension and in the right spot.

Have a great day
