Hi Bloggers.

I have a MDF Tag for you today -

I started by painting a MDF Scalloped Tag with CS White Gesso. I popped some CS Multi-Tex onto my Craft Sheet. I added some water and some CS Dries Clear Glue and mixed it really well. I popped the Dutch Doobadoo Wavy Stripes Mask on top of my tag and spread the Multi-Tex mixture through it. I dried it using a Heat Tool.

I added a piece of Cream Crochet Ribbon and some Lilac Ric Rac Ribbon . I had a die cut hanging around cut from Sue Wilson's Elegant Laced Edger so I added that too.

I had already prepared a flower made from Air Dry Clay using a Multi-Flowers Mould which was left to dry for 24 hours. I added this and a Paper Flower with a Button in the centre.

I painted over the whole thing with CS White Gesso. I painted the 'Friendship' MDF (given to me by a friend) with White Gesso and added it to my tag.

I spritzed a little CS Phill Martin Frosty Heather Ink Spray Mist over. Once dry, I added some CS Phill Martin Frosty Heather Gilding Wax to the button, the 'Friendship' MDF and around the edges of the tag.

I finished by adding some CS Glue then some White Micro Beads and some CS Sparkle Star Diamond Frost. I added a piece of Mauve American Seam Binding.

My next workshop in Milton Keynes is a Mixed Media and MDF class on Sunday 14th August. You can find more details and book via my website here.

    This is lovely. I really like the mask and your colours. I keep threatening to try mixed media. Thanks for sharing.
