Sweet as Honey Bees Home in Mdf

Welcome back to my blog...

October guest designer

 blog challange

Anything goes


Today I'm sharing my own mdf project using Heartfelt Creations sweet as Honey collection. Which was launched in the UK on Hochanda TV on the 31st May 2018 with demonstrator Nikki Wylde...

 MDF kit 

Heartfelt creations are known for paper card craft to most, moreover, I personally love to show others that mix media craft is a must with the red rubber stamps and dies that, truly work amazingly with mdf...

I have also used flowers from the backyard blooms collection from heartfelt.
Mdf ladder
Cotton Reels
Light
Distress oxides...orange marmalade...green clover...red...picked raspberry and black onyx...

Completed project below













I used gold crackle paint and Nuvo Drops over the beehive to cover the honeycomb created

Using stamps and dies from backyard blossoms collections to the decorate the front of the beehive house.
I used the stamps on the paper then coloured for the inside of the beehive home...


Using the 12x12 paper collection I covered the mdf then varnished with clear one coat sealer. 
Orange iridescent acrylic paint over white gesso... To make the honeycomb inside and around the back , just die cut on acetate and used as a stencil to add texture using thick white texture paste. 
 I hope you have found some inspiration to use heartfelt on mix media with the red rubber stamps it's possible as they will endure such likes as texture cream paste, inks, paint, the list is endless ...

Strawberry fruit box and Powertex

Welcome back to my blog...

Today I'm sharing a project I made using a strawberry box... I needed something to store some of my pigment powders, what better than recycling.

Completed pictures below



Fruit box before picture


Using the wall stencil with a pallet knife just take the texture paste and spread over the stencil to create the wall effect. Gently pull the stencil away and allow the dry.

Using a rubber mould for the skulls and hands, at this stage if you want the hands to hang over, add them to the wall carefully whilst wet, so they will dry and set.

I used air dry clay and in branded moulds.


Using Tim Holtz words adhere the words and skull along the side of the box, I decided to use an acrylic eye for one of the letters...


Adhere the mdf and Tim Holtz crypt cameos to both sides, this will all then be covered in black powertex. I prefer this method as its far more effective with dry brushing the pigment powder with the varnish... This, of course, allows your projects to go outside after three weeks...


Products used.
one fruit box size 11" x 8"
Black Powertex
Paint Brushes
Daisys Jewels and Crafts stencil (brick wall)
& MDF pieces
Tim Holtz- Idea-ology Crypt Cameos
Tim Holtz- Words
Acrylic Eye
Texture Gel Paste by Pebeo (white)
Skeleton hands and Face Moulds
Airdry Clay for moulds
Pigment Powders: Terragreen- Terraviolet and silver
Varnish by powertex which is great as within three weeks your product is waterproof using the dry brush technique

I hope this has given you some inspiration to recycle...
Below is a link to Daisys where you can purchase your mdf...
If you want to order powertex, and or, a workshop with me please message me as I'm a certified Powertex tutor for TA area of Somerset...
