Claire here this week to share a couple of projects using the stunning Save the Date collection from Teresa Collins.
So I decided to alter a MDF door hanger that I bought ages ago and never got around to the actual altering part!
So here is the finished project and then I have a couple of step by step photos to share:
So here the hanger in its original form - not very pretty....
I started by giving the edges a couple of coats of Fresco paint in Snowflake so the MDF colour wouldn't show around the edges once finished.
I then added that lovely floral paper to both the front and the back. I trimmed the paper to shape then added it to the hanger using multi medium, I then sanded away all the rough edges to create a nice, smooth finish.
The texture on the paper is just beautiful - it really looks like fabric and has a lovely heavyweight to it.
So next I tore around the sentiment panel which was included in the paper pack and I also tore a slightly larger pierce from another sheet. I distressed the edges of both pieces with the edge of a pair of scissors and also folded and bent the corners around a pencil for a curled effect.
I added a piece of the wonderful lace that came in the kit this month before layering up the torn paper pieces on top of the hanger. Then I also added a couple of the brads from this collection also.
At the top of the hanger I added another sentiment - this time it was part of a sticker strip that came in the paper pack.
To finish the back of the hanger I added one of the little Prima wood embelishments on top of the lace.
Thanks for joining me today here on the Snazzys Desigh Team blog!
