Wall Hangings | 49 and Market | ARToptions Rouge | Vintage Artistry Countryside | Giselle Homer

Hi Magpies,

At a recent scrapbooking retreat we were given wooden wall hangings to decorate for a challenge. I liked the idea so much that I thought I would make a couple more as gifts. The range of designs in 49 and Market’s rub-on transfers is vast & I had no trouble finding images that mixed together well. I was also able to use a colour scheme that I knew would work with the recipient’s decor!


ARToptions Rouge 

I started by painting the hangers with acrylic white paint, which provided a nice smooth surface. I added a sentiment that I liked & then built up the pattern as I went along. I had no clear plan in my head, apart from placing the main clusters evenly throughout the hangings.

Once the main elements were in place I added tiny extras here & there such as rows of stitches & tiny butterflies.


Here’s a close up that shows how I placed the rub-ons  so that they overlapped the edges of the wooden slats.

For this second hanger, I used some chicken wire rub ons & added some Spectrum Sherbet Palettes at the top. With this one, I used some random bead shapes to fill in some of the gaps.


Another close up. The rub ons apply well on the wooden surface, losing none of the colour or details.


If you’d like to try this, the wall hangings are available from The Works or maybe your ask your other half to make you one! I’m sure there are many other uses for these beautiful rub-ons, I’ll let you know when I find them!

Until later this month, happy scrapping everyone!
