DT Pretty Gets Gritty - Princess Wreath

This one was my favourite and would be so cool as a door hanger for a little girls bedroom.
I loved the tiny mdf diamond rings and the gorgeous pink flowers
and if I made this one again I would make the carriage and title more glittery.
The wheels on the carriage were coated with NUVU Crystals to make them stand out. I will share the last of my three wreathes tomorrow. Don't forget you can still buy your Wreath Kits HERE. xx

DT Pretty Gets Gritty - Floral Wreath

Four projects that I can share now. This first I decorated with enamel looking flowers. Actually it was a bit easier than that because I used Ranger Perfect Pearls and NUVO Crystal Drops
The Vines on the right are glittered plastic painted with Gesso and waxed/
And the flowers on the left were self supporting, carefully glued together with Matte Medium.
You can still see the shows on Hochanda ReWind on 23rd and 24th April where you can also buy all of the elements for this project. Another one tomorrow xx

Pretty Gets Gritty projects 7/4/18

I've already shown the altered box I did for the Hochandatv show which you can find HERE however I also made a few other projects including this puzzle frame using the MDF puzzle pieces and the new sprays. 
I have put links below to the products which are now available to buy online.
Next there was an old purse which I altered. There was nothing wrong with the purse except for a bit of wear and tear on the front so I thought I would give it a new lease of life.
I used a matte Gel Medium first, then Black Gesso and then Art Alchemy-Metallique Wax-White Gold over the top.
Then There was the layout made from Jigsaw Pieces

The white resin frames were painted with black gesso and then wax added.
a card and an Art Journal Cover using the fantastic sticky back fabric and Eileen Hulls Journal Die
and that's about it I think so I'll leave you the links to the products below. Have a great day xx

Baby Tag

I love MDF because it is so easy to decorate and doesn't go soggy when you add mediums and sprays to it. I have been meaning to make this for ages and finally got round to it yesterday.
The flowers are from Prima and the circle frame is from Samantha K. The little wooden letters are by DoCraft and although they are self adhesive I did add some gel medium as well to make them more permanent.

I also added little gems to the flowers to act as dewdrops.
This last photo shows you the texture on the tag and that cute little organza bow. So many new things to share. Exciting xx
