Double frame

My final project for this month for Creative Expressions today.

This time I used the frame of the smaller frame and the back for the larger frame, which are both included in the MDF frames kit. I painted the back with China pink chalk paint, then crackle glaze and Alice Blue chalk paint. For the smaller frame, I simple reversed the colours. I placed some of the Craft Consortium decoupage paper behind the smaller frame and made a rolled rose from the paper.

Earring Holder

For my fourth project this month I made an earring holder - practical and decorative!

This is a really quick and simple project and makes a really smart last minute gift. All I did was cover an MDF frame with Craft Consortium decoupage paper in Dark rose. Then I stuck aluminium mesh to cover the back of the frame and knotted a little ribbon as a hanger. Voila!

Hugs and Kisses

My third project for this month for Creative Expressions again uses an MDF base.

This time I painted the heart with Alice Blue chalk paint followed by Crackle Glaze and China Pink chalk paint. I ran a line of glue around the edge of the heart and then added Red Velvet Mica Flakes. I stamped a greeting onto a die cut and then added a Rose ribbon hanger
