And here is my new design for :
That Craft Place Challenge Blog.
As usual this fortnight's theme is:
Mixed Media Anything Goes!
So lets see what you can come up with!
But before you start here is the piece I made.
I had two oval pieces of MDF from That Craft Place and have been trying to decide how to use them.
Now I did have a play around with them, like you do Lol!
I had an idea in mind but was just not sure about how I wanted to move forward with this one so:
I turned them this way....
And I turned them this way.....
Until I found a way that I liked them.
And this is where it took me!
I started by painting the back and edges with black paint and then attaching some spotty paper by DoCrafts to the front (available at
I lay the paper on, smooth it down and when it's well attached I sand along the top sides which leaves a nice clean edge.
Next I used a snowflake stencil and Weathered Wood Distress Ink and then the same stencil with silver embossing paste. When all this was completely dry I rubbed over it with more distress ink this time Chipped Sapphire.
Next job was to die cut the snowflakes.
I cut some of these in more of the spotty card and some in a satin card.
And we are ready for the construction.
I used my Dremel multi tool to make holes in the MDF and then threaded in a nice stripy ribbon.
Mounted the large snowflakes together and finished them with a shiny embellishment.
Now everything is ready to put together.
Quite a grungy Christmas decoration especially as I decided there wasn't enough snow this year so I used the new Tim Holtz splatter brush to add some white paint to give the effect.
I hope you enjoyed watching me make this and it would be great if you could leave me a comment and then pop over and see what the other DT members have been making and maybe join in the challenge too at:
