As I have shows on Create and Craft tomorrow I thought I would give you a sneak peak of some of the samples I have made for the show. This is a decoupage show featuring the Craft Consortium pares, MDF storage units, some stunning MDF frames that are brand new as well as a couple of my stamp sets that are prefect for stamping on the papers and the units making them truly individual. I have, as usual, made far too many samples but I love playing with these papers and find so many different ways to use them!
IN the top 2 I have used a couple of new papers from Craft consortium to cover a big boy unit (as named by Martyn) in postcards and a ribbon units in the matching chevrons design.
The ribbon unit featured here is simply painted using mat chalk paint as well as the brand new matching crackle paint. I have then stamps on this using some of the elements from the Fen frames and sentiments clear stamp set form Creative expressions. These small flowers have a solid centre stamp as well as a detailed outline making colouring and stamping so easy. I added a few of the ferns as well then distressed the unit by adding pewter gilding wax. I hope you agree but to me this has a really nice soft feel to it.
The shows are on tomorrow at 10am and 2pm so tune in or record if it takes your fancy!
