I did this for a recent swap. My partner was very into chakras, so I figured a wall hanging of some sort would be cool. I had the wood pieces lying around the house forever, they were from one of my Grama's Christmas trees from when I was a little girl. I sanded them, leaving the bark on. Then I used watercolors to stain each of the pieces with the corresponding chakra color. Then I used acrylic paint to paint on each of the chakra symbols. I used craft wire in between the pieces, and strung seed beads in matching colors. I used a clear sealer on the top of it. Anyway, here it is! I'd love feedback. I'm thinking of making more hangings like these. I still have some of the wood pieces, and I can get a hold of some more. I love the way the watercolors soaked into the pine.

Here is a full shot, it's laying on a adult xl tshirt for scale:

And on to the close ups!





Hope you enjoy! I'm not sure if this is the right board for this, there was a lot of painting... but let me know if I should move it! Smiley
