Good morning folks, we've got lots of inspiration for you today over at We Love 2 Create and you've still got plenty of time to play along with our 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes' challenge!! Pop over and have a look at all the inspiration from my lovely teamies and see if you were picked as winner or one of the top 3 in our last challenge. Our generous sponsors at Premium Craft Brands have some fab crafty goodies up for grabs for our lucky winner too.
For my project I've altered an MDF blank using my PanPastels. Its not the best of photos but thats nothing new for me lol. Once I'd given the mdf a coat of gesso I added some colour with shades of turquoise and bright yellow green PanPastels and did a wee bit of stencilling here and there using a Dutch Doobadoo stencil and some Maimeri Light Modelling Paste. Once that was dry I added some white pearl medium for some sparkle. I stamped the flowers using Dreamees stamps and Memento Ink (Lady Bug) and stamped in some grass here and there too. I added dots of black enamel accents to the centre of the flowers and left it all to dry. I wanted a nice gold edge to the MDF but this is really awkward with a gold pen or embossing powder so I used versamark ink (applied with a cotton bud) and then used Gold PanPastel with one of the sofft tool applicators to give a pretty gold edge. To finish off I added a metal butterfly coloured with white gesso and gold PanPastel, a gingham bow and a paper poppy which unfortunately just looks like a blob in my photo lol.
