Something a bit different

Hi Bloggers.

Something a bit different today. I've had an MDF Egg Stand for a while to store my Smoothies but have only just got around to decorating it. I'm not quite the expert that John Lockwood is at this sort of thing but it's fun to do.

I painted it with Peacock Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint - 2 coats. I added some Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Denim Sparkle Texture Paste through the Fizz Mask.

I painted a couple of MDF words from the Creative Expressions Craft Themed Pack with Violet Shimmer Paint and dabbed a little Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Denim Twinkles over them.

MDF Egg Stands are available on my website here. I've a few bottles of Shimmer Paint here, Masks here, Sparkle Texture Pastes here and Twinkles here. If you're shopping on my website, be sure to checkout the Clearance Section especially if you're just short of qualifying for free postage!

Thanks for stopping by.

  15. It is a great idea, but as most crafters (me included) seem to craft in a space not much bigger than this, I am wondering were it can go.
