So, at the request of a co-worker I created a wall hanging of his brides father, centered around a photo he provided. For the sake of lack of time and a better picture (for now) I am posting a quick photo of the wall hanging. Ugh...I promise to replace it with a better picture of the final product plus maaaaybe a step by step of how I did it. I'm not much on tutorials....at least not yet.
OK....a much better photo(s) and a finished product. Very happy with the results! I did reign that wayward leaf back in.
A close up of the "jewelry" near the bottom of the hanging. I call it jewelry because it's kind of like the necklace on the piece. The little fish was a find by my husband while he was fishing. Perfect! And then the little ruler...a nod to the size of the fish caught. I had some copper wire that I wrapped around the ends to give a little more somethin' somethin'. Enjoy!
