Happiness with Dutch Doobadoo

Good morning my lovelies, hopefully blogger will play nicely and post this as I should be on my way to Leeds for a day training so I've got to leave home at the crack of dawn. I always look forward to training as its lovely to get away from the office and meet new peeps but you can guarantee that the train will break down or I'll get lost and spend hours wandering aimlessly around lol. Anyway enough rambling on, my project today is a little wall hanging was made with lots of Dutch Doobadoo goodies. There's still lots of time to enter the 'Sweet as Honey' challenge at We Do Doobadoo so don't miss out on a chance to win some gorgeous goodies!!

These pics are even worse than usual as this was one of some samples I made for a recent show and I took the pics at some unearthly hour using my ottlite so thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it lol. I began by painting the MDF tryptich panels with Maimeri Gesso and edging them with Treasure gold. I used the flower swirl mask with my gelli plate to create the background, I didn't use paint but just Maimeri iridescent paste and took the print one some card that I'd coloured with shades of yellow PanPastels.

I've used Dutch Doobadoo lasercuts: buttons, butterflies, corners and also added some of my favourite Softboard Honeycomb. The sentiment stamps are from Paper Artsy and the main image is from Crafty Individuals, coloured with Graph'It markers.

I've added some bakers twine to the little buttons and then used lots of yellow gingham ribbon to string the pieces on their sides to create the wall hanging.

I'm entering this in the following challenges
All crafts: anything but a card
Come and Get it: Easter or Spring
Crafts and Me: anything goes
Sentimental Sunday: flowery Spring
The Craft Garden: pastel colours
Whoopsi Daisy: welcome Spring

Thanks for popping by today
