Mixed Media Wall Hanging

Good morning, my project today is an Autumn themed mixed media wall hanging.  I started off with base card and added strips of mulberry paper with mod podge.  When dry I painted it all over with bronze, orange and dark brown acrylic paint.  After the paint had dried I randomly stamped over the area.  I then glued the base card to corrugated cardboard to give it more strength.

At the top right I added a spider's web.  I painted it black before adding to card base.  There is also a small plastic spider in the web.

In the bottom right hand corner I added a few plastic green leaves, conkers and pine cones coated with glossy mod podge, then I added flowers in earth tone colours.

 I carried the flowers, conkers and pine cones arrangement along to the next corner and added the pumpkin after painting it orange and black.

For the top left corner, I added a small copper coloured chain to drape down the base card then glued the bat on the top. 
To finish I used a banner strip with October and a small spider's web, these came from Graphic 45 A Place in Time paper collection.

The bat, pumpkin and spider's web are laser cut shapes from Fernli Designs and the flowers
from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I hope you like my mixed media project.

Thanks for stopping by.
