I have been playing with something new over the last week or so, and really enjoying it too! What you see above is my first attempt at decorating MDF, I ordered a kit of beautiful lace, that I showed on last weeks 'Guilty Secrets ' feature, I bought some MDF shapes from Farnborough and thee two go perfectly well together.
I used a piece of my favourite Bella Rose (First Edition ) paper to cover thee MDF heart, I adhered it with Cosmic Shimmer Glue, I sanded the edges, to smooth off the edge of the paper, I then used hot glue to attach the heart trim and then thee pretty pink pearl string on top of that. I then attached some green natural grass and muslin cloth to the heart, I topped that with some of my pink flowers and some coloured stamens, with a little foliage too.
I then decided to add a word, so I covered a Laser Cut word with Gesso and then painted it pink and sprinkled it with glitter!
I hope you like it xx
Now my inspiration for wanting to 'alter' and make things pretty came from watching You Tube, one of the Channels I found really inspirational was
Here are a couple of her pieces of work........

Amanda (Scrimpy's) Own Lace Caddy
I have got 2 of these Lace Caddy's , I am part way through decorating one,
They would be good for carrying anything around, craft tools or embellishments, you can buy the spools to wind your lace on too, Fernli Designs sells Amanda's caddy its just £3 and you can decorate to your on taste.
There are so many more beautiful things to see on Amanda's YouTube channel
