Wall Hanging and Face

Hello Everyone who drops in and thank you for your visit.
Today it is cold here and there was a red sky and frost on the cars when I got up. Seems to be a bit warmer now so hope the temperature will be better later in the day.

I have made a wall hanging for Moo Mania and More and also for The Mirror Crack'd.
The theme at Moo Mania this time is 'Autumn Mood' and at The Mirror Crack'd they have a' Tic-Tac-Toe' with the centre square of Wall Hanging and you can just use this square if you make a hanging.

I collected the leaves and sprayed them with fine oil and rubbed it in to preserve the leaves . The backing paper is one I made up in Paint Shop Pro then I covered a piece of a cardboard Box with it. The edges are smeared with Distressed inks. I added the leaves which were sprayed with Cosmic Glimmer Vintage Mist,and a flower made from TH's tattered flowers die cut this was dabbed with Distressed ink to match the edges of the hanging. The text is cut from a sheet of stickers made by Making Memories.

My face this week for Kim Dellow Show Your Face is a digital one for a change.

I used a few layers and lots of brushes to create this on this everything but the face which I drew with the pen tool.

Have a lovely day and I hope the weather is just right where you are

Love Chrissie xx
