That Craft Place Challenge.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

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.....

And again...

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 
That Craft Place here and here).

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:

Many thanks for your comments
happy crafting,
