Hello! Shery here to share another home decor project. This time it's a mixed media door hanger with an autumn flavor! Autumn is my absolute favorite season. I love the richness of the fall colors and I wouldn't mind at all if it were fall all year!
When I spied this rather plain door hanger in one of my drawers, I knew just what to do with it. I love the sentiments and stitches in many SRM Stickers sheets. They're perfect for any project, especially mixed media projects! I used several fun ones: Sentiment/Fall, Sentiment/Life Is Good, Sticker Stitches/Black,Sticker Stitches/Halloween, and We've Got Your Border/Halloween.
I started by applying Liquitex modeling paste through stencils from Crafter's Workshop and Plaid. Next, I applied a generous coat of white gesso over the surface.
When the gesso was dry, I applied distress paints (mustard seed, spiced marmalade, and festive berries). I spritzed a bit of water and then blended the paints with my fingers.
After the paints were dry, I stamped a sunflower in sparrow, a dark brown Mix'd Media Chox ink all over. I also applied schoolhouse, a dark red Mix'd Media pigment ink all around the edges.
Lastly, I picked three inspiring sentiments from SRM's Sentiment/Fall and Sentiment/Life Is Good sheets, as well as used the fun banners and dots from the We've Got Your Border/Halloween sheet. I also used some fun stitches from the Sticker Stitches/Black sheet and the Sticker Stitches/Halloween sheet.
Here's my finished autumn mixed media door hanger. I love the way it turned out.
Thanks so much for letting me share! And Happy Fall!
