HAPPY HOME WALL HANGING

Hello all,

Today, I'm posting my latest DT project for Daisy's Jewels and Crafts - "Happy home" wall hanging, using the fab triple mdf plaques. These are lovely to paint or cover in your favourite papers.
I also used one of the little mdf houses from Daisy's and their mdf words "Happy" & "Home"
and a couple of their small fence pieces.
I loved making this, and it makes a lovely gift piece for someone for their home. I added some cute little metal tassels at the bottom to finish it all off. Hope you like:) See you all soon xx

HOCHANDA SAMPLES 13/09

Hey all,
Today, I'm sharing my samples for Daisy's Jewels and Crafts shows on Hochanda, Wednesday, 13th September. Shows at 8am and 3pm.
They'll be showcasing some fabulous Christmas mdf, such as advent calendars, book boxes and more, including some gorgeous stencils. Make sure you tune in to see all the great samples and fab prices.
Here are my samples for the shows. I've made one of each of the great book boxes (they come in three different sizes) for the two smaller ones I used Christmas papers and paints to cover. For the largest, I used red tissue paper. To decorate, I used some of the little mdf shapes from the grab bag available.
I also made an mdf vase, which I also painted and covered with papers. I added a couple of tea lights (battery) to light it up.
These were all easy to assemble and lots of fun. I hope you enjoy the shows :)

R.I.P

Hey everyone,

I'm so excited about this latest DT project for Daisy's Jewels and Crafts. With Halloween coming up soon, I decided to have a go at creating something a lil spooky. Whereas, I love all things creepy, I don't exactly celebrate Halloween as such (unless you count having a penchant for all the films lol)
Daisy's do a fab plaque with a stand/art board with a curved top, that put me in mind of a gravestone, so I decided to make one.
I built a small frame within the plaque for definition, then I covered it with structure paste and art stones. Then, once dry, I covered with gesso. Then, embellished.
I used some of the fake cobweb to cover some of the gravestone and lots of Tim Holtz idea-ology goodies to embellish. I hope you like šŸ‘

3D TRIPLE FRAME

Hey guys,

Today, I'm sharing my latest DT project for Daisy's Jewels and Crafts - 3D triple frame. I used mine as a shadow box, in a vintage/apothecary/steampunk style.
I started by covering all components in an 'industrial' style tissue paper  - attached and sealed with mod podge.
I used loads of fab embellishments on each of the shelves.
I had previously made loads of backgrounds using the distress oxides then I cut a few butterflies, using the 'Butterfly Duo' bigz die from Tim Holtz. Then, embossed each one, with the embossing folder included.
All products, as ever, are listed below :)
I attached some chain to hang mine up, it makes quite a statement piece!
Enjoy xx
