Creative Expressions Friday Blog Post

Hello everyone. Hope you have all had a crafty week.
This week I have begun my preparations for Ally Pally (Alexandra Palace Crafting Show), on the 19th and 20th September.
Also today we have the fabulous John Lockwood on Hochanda working with Creative Expressions' fabulous MDF.  So I though I would kill 3 birds with one stone! DT post, Ally Pally sample, and an example of how I used the MDF sleigh like John on Hochanda.
So here we go.

I used:
MDF Sleigh
MDF Words
Phill Martin's Paper Pad
Sue Wilsons Poinsettia die, holly and fern.
White chalk paint
Vintage Photo ink pad

Prior to assembly I painted the MDF with Gesso.
I then traced and cut out the Sleigh using Phill Martin's Christmas papers
I painted the sleigh using Cosmic shimmer White and Corinth Blue chalk paints.

I glued the papers to the sleigh and sealed them with Glue and Glaze.
I then used Sue Wilson's Poinsettia, holly and fern die, along with 
her Finishing Touches Spirals which I cut using the coordinating papers
from the pad.

I repeated the process on both side and glued everything on with 
Cosmic shimmer glue.
This would make a fabulous table decoration, or sweetie holder or even a place
to pop the salt and pepper in, on the Christmas Dinner table.

So there you have it.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this. Check back next week to see what I have done with
baubles, texture paste and dies.

Happy Crafting.
