I also purchased some things at Ikea while I was helping Lauren move to Baltimore last summer. They are supposed to be used for sheers, but I saw organizational possibilities for unused wall space in the Batcave. My handy hubby hung them. They are called 'Dignitet' and are a fairly thin wire that can be tightened from either end as weight is added. I have seen these used for hanging kid's artwork. I am using them for my ephemera because I am one of those people who need to see what I have in order to use it. There are clips that you buy to go with these. The plan was to use one wall for the product and the other for artwork, but ... ahem, I had too much product. Oops. That is what comes of working at a scrapbook store. The hearts were another find at (help me Alisa), I believe, Urban Finds in Des Moines. They are corrugated metal just cut and painted. I bought them for Valentine's Day, but love them so much that I hung them in the Batcave. I may eventually move them up to the wall, but for now, I love just seeing them in here.
|You can't see it, but there is a little tightener thingy on|
the place where this is attached to the wall.
|This is just hot glue and then some Tim Holtz paint dauber|
rubbed over the glue after it is cooled.
|This is gel medium (Claudine Hellmuth) on paper.|
|My fav: sticky back canvas, gel medium, and paint.|
It looks like Batik fabric to me. It's cool to work with the sticky back.
You can just press it down on your craft mat and it stays for you.
|Alcohol ink and stencil. Love it!|
