Graphic 45-Typography Hanging

For this month  at Ali-Crafts I was given Graphic 45 paper -Typography to use.

I must say I have been converted to Graphic 45 it is lovely to use and the quality is very good.I decided to do a hanging
  I started with a piece of mountboard which I covered in paper  then when around the edges with  Tim Holtz tissue tape  using a graphic 45 stamp of the alphabet and typewriter I stamped them on paper the I put a light coat of gesso over it.

Then using Tim's dies tattered florals  and  tattered leaves I edged using walnut stain then sprayed them with perfect pearls scrunch them up and allow to dry when dry flatten the out lightly and put  the flower together using a brad  attach to hanging I used pinflair to attached it with and then I poked leaves underneath

 I then tore and couple of strips of contrasting  paper  and put on either side I also cut out the word Typography which I put on top right corner at a angle.before I attached any of the paper I edged it with walnut stain DI.I then punched to hole at top and threaded brown raffia though the tying knots in the front.

.Added a couple of pen nibs to the left side.Then cut out one of the toppers from pack tripled embossed it and put on top left hand side made up a gem embellishment and put on raffia.

                                                              Do hope you all like it.
