Faces wall hanging

I started this project with a piece of cardboard onto which I glued scraps of old book pages. Once dry I coloured it with various Pan Pastels and stamped on some images, using black Archival Ink. The faces (Lynne Perella stamps by Paper Artsy) were stamped onto brown paper that had previously been used to catch any stray ink whilst spraying other projects. I then layered these onto other scraps of paper. The ribbon came off a label from a dress I bought. To finish the piece off I added various metal charms and some stones. These were the only bits that weren't recycled.

A wonderful wall hanging. The scrap paper underneath our projects produces some amazing art in its own right.
