More hangers!

I just love to make them! so every time I´m not into a card mood I just make one of these hanger and I feel completely happy afterwards ☺
This time I made two of them: they are made altering an old CD. I like to alter them because I don´t have to think of the shape, they are already a perfect circle! and they have plenty of room for you to play.
The image is Winter Bear I got from Designed to delight for free because I participated last week on their challenge blog, it´s a progressive challenge where you get in your inbox a free image to play with for the next challenge if you played on the previous one, it´s an all win challenge! isn´t it great?!?! I love the idea!
I colored the bears with colored pencils and blended them with mineral oil: I used two color schemes green-purple and green-orange (click on them to enlarge). I added dots of white puff paint on the falling snow (puffed after it dried) and glitter on the sliding snow, cut in a circle and they were ready to place with foam tape on the center of the front part. The front papers are cut from an old music book and painted with white acrylic paint because they were (too) yellow... then I glued some sequins with coordinating colors in a circle around the image.
On the back I used a napkin as patterned paper glued to a piece of cardstock. The sentiments are from TlcCreations cut in a circular shape too and placed on the centers with foam tape also.
I painted dots of white puff paint around the sentiments and glittered them before it dried (tap the excess and let it dry before puffing it), so you end up with a glittery puffy border...
And finally to hang then I used a piece of fishing line I decorated starting with a sequin snowflake and a few glass seed beads with coordinating colors, I finished it with a loop and another snowflake. When I finished them I found them kind of plain on the borders so I glued a piece of white fiber around, it was a good idea because I could hide the CD edge at the same time.
Hope you like this one and feel inspired to recycle your old CDs too!
