I’m taking a bit of a break from ATCs for this week’s Creative Expression make. The Creative Expression team all got items from the MDF Dimension art range in their DT packs this month and if you want to see what the rest of the team have done with theirs then don’t forget to pop on over to the Creative Expression’s Facebook page and scroll through the beautiful makes.
So this MDF piece is the Baroque Square Photo Frame.
To give you an idea of the size it is 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 inch), it comes in three pieces – the shaped front of the frame, a smaller square back with drilled holes and a stick to use in one of the holes as the stand.
I started by covering the frame and back piece with old book pages then used the acrylic paints to add a colour wash. Once this was dry I added some tinted molding paste through the That Special Touch Peacock mask…
and the That Special Touch Polka dots mask.
Then some dry brushing with white paint and wiping with the cobalt Ranger Archival ink pad.
Finally the brush pen sentiment was made from the old book page collage and a bit of wire decoration to go with the flowers and wire leaves.
Thanks for popping in today.
