Christmas Already?? Part 2

I am back with the rest of my Christmas project. It is a hanger for a swap I am hosting for the All Things Tim Yahoo Group. Eventually it will have clips on it to hold a wonderful piece of artwork created by 27 other artists.

Here are a few details of how I created the hanger. I started out with just a plain old felt covered hanger.

I then wrapped the hanger with some Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and inked it up with Fired Brick Distress Ink.

Over at Simon Says Stamp and Show they are having a Tape Challenge. So to really get in the challenge spirit I decided to use some Foil tape that I bought at a local hardware store along with the Tissue Tape. First I applied it to a scrap piece of cardstock.

I then used the On The Edge Snow Flurries Die by Tim Holtz to cut out the snowflakes. After they were cut out I ran it through the Bubble Wrap embossing folder.

After the texture was added to the snow flakes I inked them with Snow Cap, Denim, Pool, and Caramel Alcohol inks. Finally I glued 4 of these to the hanger.

Next I wrapped some tinsel ribbon around the hanger and glued some white Tulle to the back of it to add some more texture and width to the hanger.

I then started in on the embellishments. I had a huge bag of old wooden clothes pins hanging around just asking to be used. To make them look even more worn I painted then with Picket Fence Crackle Paint.

After the Crackle Paint was dried I stamped the clothes pin with a script stamp and Olive Archival ink. I also added some gold Rub-n-Buff to random Spots of the clothes pin.

I then added some Shrinky Dink Christmas Charms to the clothes Pin, the Christmas saying, and some seam binding died with Brushed Corduroy Distress Stain.

Next up is the cute little Shrinky Dink Christmas houses and the vintage trees.
I also added some little baubles throughout the hanger inked with various colors of Alcohol Ink, some greenery and a vintage Ticket.  
Now for some Festive Greenery.
And what Christmas Hanger would be complete without a Vintage Christmas Picture.
Last, but not least is the ornament in the center. To see more details on the ornament you can view my previous post.
Thank you for stopping by. Hope this post puts you in a Festive Mood!
