Door Hanger Sign
I am back from Scotland and I have horrible jet lag! It's been 3 days and I just can't get back into this time zone yet. I had such a lovely time at home in Scotland with my family. The weather was pretty mild it rained mostly. When we landed back in NY I walked out of the airport and my lips froze it was that cold yikes!!! Today we have snow so I am home having a crafty day :)
I made this door hanger a few weeks ago for my friend Colin who is massage therapist and yoga teacher in Scotland. He just moved into a new place of work and needed a new door sign for his room. He asked if I would make him one so of course I took on the challenge :) If you need a massage and are in the Glasgow area I highly recommend him. Here is his website Glasgow Yoga Massage if you are interested in checking him out.
So on to my door hanger :) This was a plain wooden hanger that I painted then covered in card stock. I printed out the words and stamped the tree image using my distress inks. Once the card was stuck down I gave it 2 coats of clear glue to protect it. Next on each side of the hanger I sprinkled some copper embossing powder and heat set it then added some twine. This was just to reinforce it being handled on a daily basis. Finally I added some twine and a wee metal embellishment that says serenity on it just to complete it.
I hope you like my door hanger! It was the first one I ever made and I am pretty pleased with it :)
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today have a lovely day!!
