For You - mdf decor

I think it is important that we can use our products all year round and just because a range is labelled as Winter/Christmas if you we choose wisely it can be used to good effect out side that season. I hope that this piece demonstrates this.

The base of this piece was created on the teapot MDF artboard which comes complete with the attatchments so that the finished piece can be hung easily. The base was primed with gesso before painting with a denim blue shade of acrylic paint - there are several alternative blues if you search under Pentart that will work well. Once the paint had dried I then added details to the base by applying more gesso through a swirly stencil and left it to dry.

Next I added a a beautiful winter paper to an approximately 7" circle of grey board before filing the edges smooth and adding some chipped saphire distress ink to the edges. I then applied some beautiful grey lace to the back of the greyboard circle pleating it as I adhered it in place. The prepared circle was then adhered to the teapot base with some scrap cardboard lifting it slightly off the surface. 

 I took a second piece of the winter paper and cut out the witner queen circle before scruffing up the edges and adding more lace. This was then layered using more scrap cardboard on to the circle applied in the laststep. 

To embellish the piece I chose to add some chipboard elements - a rose wreath ( he freesia will work just as well adding one on top and cuting another into two to slip below the paper circle. Ithen fussy cut elements from the winter is coming flowers paper shaping them with a ball tool and layering them to create more dimension.The floral elemtns and the leaves were then adhered in place adding more chipboard leaves

 Finally I added some glitter for a little sparkle and then some splatters of watered down white gesso.
