MDF Alter Stuff~

Hello Girls~

Not very nice weather again here today, no washing out blowing in the breeze and no lunch outside...Yak!

I have a couple of MDF Altered items to show you today. It is my friend's Wedding Anniversary on Saturday, and as well as a nice bottle of wine, I wanted to make them something. They are the sort of friends who love handmade projects, so I know they are going to like what I have made them, hope you like it too.

I have used some Basic Grey heavy weight paper in this cream and red colour (the colour of my friend's Bedroom) and stamped the image for the front with a stamp from my Inkilicious set.
I coloured the image with Tim Holtz Distress markers. The flowers are all die cut using several of my dies. I have painted the MDF with a wash of Gesso to prime, then used Do Crafts Acrylic Paint in Sand. These are lovely paints and have a really nice consistency, very good price at £1.50 each as well. Tons of colours to choose from too, including some pearl and translucent colours. I bought mine in the Range, but they have them at my local craft shop too. 
I managed to buy some note block refills at the local Ryman's, so that was an easy option for the Note Blocks, I really did not fancy cutting lots of papers at 4x4 to put inside, and this way they are all the perfect size too!!
