Altered Wooden Ladle - A Wall Hanging :)

Hey Hello!!!

This time have come up with an altered wooden ladle....into a wall hanging :)

New wooden ladle was taken and painted in white acrylic paint and after drying,  distressed with Rich cocoa momento and sanded with sanding block to give a shabby chic look.


To level the depth of the ladle, added some packaging cardboard as strips and hot glued it. Then on top of it, added 2 English Tea Party Doily Angel wings is diecut from IBS vintage florals pp as base. The focal element - Butterfly is a diecut and distressed with Danube momento ink and added just below the sentiment diecut,which is also distressed with rich cocoa momento. A scallop border sticker is added as a trim under doilies on the baby pink tulle.

Handmade blooms :)

Tried making some crinkled flowers with pearl centers and added with florishes. Those leaves are from Ivy florish diecuts. Flowers are distressed with rich cocoa momento and Tumbled glass DI and misted with water to get shapes.

Wrapped the handle with pink grossgrain ribbon and added MS butterfly stamp and punch butterflies in series and a big butterfly diecut is added on a sentiment diecut saying "Spread your wings and Fly". Few trims on the handle with blue grossgrain ribbon as loop for hanging :)

Love those sentiments and now only had time to create apt project for that :)
Hope you like it!!
