My wall hanging is finished (at last).


The backing fabric is black and I have decorated it with some twigs, leaves and small gum nuts from our garden.






Before I put it on the backing I damped stretched it.  The picture shows it pinned to the cork board ready for spraying with water.

I was a little concerned that some of the colour in the threads might run but all was well.

This is to hang in our lounge room.

I am pleased to see it finished because I have been distracted by other things lately

Just my type of wallhanging Dianne and it will look even more wonderful when hanging on your wall x

What a lovely piece this has become. It has a lovely airy feel about it, indicative of eucalypt foliage of course. You've added a lovely touch with the branches, etc. The colours are certainly easily suited to any room's decor. You must be really thrilled with this one Dian.
