Lolly Stick Wall Art

After seeing Sandra's (Sandma Cards) wonderful lolly stick wall art as a sample for the last inkylicious show, I decided to have a go myself. I've been posting plenty of them on facebook but realised that I hadn't put any on my blog yet, so there are a few to see.

Here is how I secured the back and how to hang it
Each plaque is made by sticking large lollysticks together using hot glue. I painted them with either black or white acrylic paint then used ink dusters and inks over the paint. With the black one I used oxide inks and colourbox white pigment ink. For the white ones I dusted with distress inks and used watercolour markers, as well as stickles.   For all of them I used inkylicious stamps, ink dusters and stencils. If you want to know more feel free to leave a question and I will get back to you.
It is report writing season so I am spending all my spare time on those. I hope I will be able to see the wood for the trees by the end of the month and get more time in blogland after that.
Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments xxx
