Mixed Media Wall Plaque

This plaque started life as reject MDF off cuts given to me by Crafty Friend, she was given them and then shared with me.
Now that’s what I call a friend, what do you think?



There have been no Saturday classes over the summer but last week saw the start of them again.

Because of one thing and another Phil was the only person who could make it and she didn’t mind having a one to one, below is what we made.

Slow start to the class because we were nattering, consequently we didn’t get it completed.  Finally finished mine and well chuffed with how it turned out.


The Plaque is very dimensional and touchy feely, love it.

Used stamps from Inkylicious, Crafty Individuals, Stampin Up, PaperArtsy and a new one which I just bought by Seth Apter (that’s the frame in the middle).

Apart from the stamping I painted, stencilled, used paper napkins, builders mesh and gauze.

Also found some old twine which I plaited to make the hanger for the plaque.


I am entering this into the Craft Stamper Challenge which is Anything Goes.

    So very pretty. All the stamps mix well. Makes you want that spring feel all year long.

    Very imaginative use of the offcuts Shirley and perfect choice of stamping and always like “touchy feely” craft. Like the blogger above sorry I’ve been MIA, one side still wonky and everything takes twice as long.

    Fantastic imagination you have there, Shirl! I LOVE THIS IDEA! I wondered what the final outcome would be when you showed the first photo of wooden pieces. Lovely nature scene full of the song givers found abundantly in Nature! Your choice of colors is serene and peaceful! I love your project! hugs, de
