Here's my 1st September project for Imagination Crafts - Iv'e made a wall-hanging for Christmas using the MDF shapes from Imagination Crafts.
This project features a new technique that Iv'e come up with - If you spread Sparkle medium onto an MDF shape - then when dry, paint it over with Silkies and use a heat gun to heat it up, the paint bubbles leaving a fantastic raised surface on your project. I recommend doing this in a well ventilated room though.
For this project I painted the base and top of the MDF frame with Chalk white paint then when dry, added a thick layer of Crackle Medium. When this layer was dry I over-painted with Jet Black paint and it then crackled as you can see here on the left. The base was painted in reverse so that the white shows through.
I added a stamped sentiment and some holly painted with Silkies to the middle and stencilled over the whole frame with the Flourish Stencil and silver and purple Sparkle Medium.
I cut out some Holly leaves and painted them with Silkies to for the bottom right of the frame.
With Christmas not too far away, these frames from Imagination Crafts make lovely presents and something people can keep year after year.
