Christmas Blog Hop!

Hello & Welcome to the Love My Tapes Christmas Blog Hop!

You should have arrived her from JJ Sobey's blog, but if you didn't that's ok head over to the Love My Tapes blog to start from the beginning, you don't want to miss anything!

I made a sweet little vintage/grunge inspired Christmas wall hanging to share today.


The Base was a plain wood wall plaque that I found at the dollar store, which I covered in torn strips of three different fabric sheets, white newsprint, brown newsprintcream with flowers, and a few layers of lace tape.  Once I had all my layers down I used a little off white paint over top, but I kept it just light enough that some of the patterns from the fabric sheets show through.

Here's a little close up so you can see the layers a bit better.....


Thank you for joining us all today for our Christmas Blog Hop!!

Now it's time to head over to Rita Barakat's blog for some more inspiration!!
