Live and Love!

Good Morning Crafter's

Today it is my turn to share a tutorial with you! 

I have made a wall plaque using MDF Frame and Charms

MDF Frame and Charms (Birdcage)
MDF Paint and Crackle
Sparkle Medium - Pastel Green and Antique Bronze
Silkies - Bronze Brocade and Turquoise Satin
Stencils - Leafy Swirl and Dawn Chorus

Paint the 2 frames with Silkies Turquoise Satin

Add a layer of Crackle and then MDF Paint in Limestone, leave to dry.

Paint the birdcage and bird with MDF Paint in Limestone, once dry stipple Silkies Bronze Brocade, add a touch of Sunshine Yellow to the beak and a dot of Royal Satin for the eye.

Using part of the Dawn Chorus Stencil and Sparkle Medium Antique Bronze stencil on left side of the frame.

Again using part of the Dawn Chorus Stencil, stencil with Sparkle Medium Antique Bronze.

With Pastel Green Sparkle Medium Stencil part of the Leafy Swirl Stencil.

Add patterned paper in the recess and attached ribbon on the back.  Adhere the second frame to the back which acts as a sandwich securing the ribbon.
Add chain to the bird cage and adhere to the frame, attach the bird and small blossom on the tree and leaves.
To finish off add Tim Holtz Adage Tickets.

This now resides on the wall in my dining room.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
 We will have another tutorial on Wednesday!
