Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge there are not any rules! Simply craft! Anything goes!
I was inspired to create a mixed media home decor wall hanging:
I love to decorate my home with various homemade projects so I took advantage of this challenge to create a mixed media wall hanging:
Using a variety of Distress Stain Sprays, I created an inky Trellis Framework textured background:

I embellished with a trio of die cut Tattered Pinecone blossoms and Garden Greens:
and a crackled Caged Bird:
For the sentiment, I used a fun Big Chat Sticker:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with theSimon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)

I really love birdcage images. Not that I want to keep birds in cages - I think it's just their link to a little Victorian loveliness that draws me in. And speaking of loveliness - you've captured it time and time again in your beautiful wall hanging.
