Dressing table pots...

 These MDF pots have lots of uses. I've decorated this set with some rice paper images. These ones sit on the tray that comes with the kit. I use acrylic wax to stick them to the painted surface.


I've used the rice paper on the front and then painted and texture stamped the other sides in brown ink, then stamped pink leaves in paint over the top..


If you want to, you can take them off the base, you can even use them singly, a different design on each!


Thanks for looking!

Key Hanger...

My last key from the set became a key hanger.

I used painted cotton reels as plant pots to show off the sweet peas and make a sign.


You can just see here that I've made a border using the head of the flowered key.


I just screwed some hooks into the MDF from which to hang your keys.

Hope you've enjoyed this post.

Mash up time!

 They've got a new topic on the PaperArtsy blog - Designer Mash up. I thought this was a brilliant idea - use 4 different designers in one project.


Hope you enjoy the project!

Hope they cheer you up on this very grey and wet day!

Hanging key...

 For this key, I decided to make a wall hanging:

The keys themselves are really easy to stamp on and then I die cut some spare Craftyboard to make the plaques. I've used some of the new stamps, masks and Craftyboard shapes to decorate them.

Rusty old key...

These MDF keys from That's Crafty! are wonderful to play with. You get three in a pack, all different, and this is the first one I made.


I decided to rust it up a bit using the trusty cinnamon method - the rivets were just large flat back pearls that I stuck on first.


That's Crafty! also made Craftboard sheets of key designs to go with the new stamp designs - this one is embossed in a mixture of silver and copper. The wings come from one of the stamp sets, stamped and embossed onto silver card that's been coloured with alcohol inks.

This is just the first of my keys - I'll show you the others at a later date.
Thanks for looking!
