Hi to you all, thought you might like to see what I made using the Masterboard that my friend Gloria sent me.
This is the original Masterboard.
Just hoping Gloria likes this and the rest of you too.
The first stage was to trace round the MDF shape, cut out the Masterboard heart and attach it to the MDF blank.
I have spent a lot of money in the past on glue in nice bottles but still find that the PVA glue from The Works which is only £1.99p, is brilliant for sticking this.
Spread it evenly across the MDF heart first and then smooth over the paper to ensure it is well stuck down.
I love the Masterboard but decided it needed messing up a bit.
I used the Tim Holtz heart mask and added some embossing paste.
I used 3D gel on the smaller MDF heart and placed a small gem into it which can be seen above.
Next I cut out some of the spare hearts, covered them in crackle paste and put them on one side to dry.
I used a Tim Holtz sanding block for this but any sandpaper will do.
Trim off as much of the paper as necessary and then sand until the edge is smooth.
Next I painted the back to give a nice finish.
Once all this was dry, I painted the edges,
allowed this to dry and applied gilding wax.
I also used gilding wax and acrylic paint to rub over the stencilled hearts giving them a fairly grungy finish.
If you prefer a neater finish then mix the colour with the embossing paste before applying it through the stencil.
The next stage was to put the sections together to complete the heart.
And here is the finished piece ready to be posted.
I hope you enjoyed watching me create this piece.
Many thanks for stopping by
and happy crafting,
