41. MDF Small Mixed Media Butterfly Heart

Hi ❤ Here is the next segment to my blog. I hope you enjoy and find it helpful. I will add to my blog on a weekly basis hopefully it will inspire, encourage and motivate you to get crafting ❤

This mdf heart is 1 of 3 projects I have made. I originally intended to link them all together and that is why they have a colour theme but in the end I decided. to keep them as 3 separate projects to give as gifts.

1. Cover mdf in light grey.
2. Use a brayer to apply lightened Nordic Blue chalk paint, allowing light grey to show through.
3. Use a brayer to randomly apply Nordic Blue, allowing previous colours to show through in some areas.
4. Use Peacock Feathers distress ink with Feathers stencil.
5. Use black archival for the Birds and Grasses stencil.
6. Use Silver Inka and the Butterflies.
7. Place a small amount Steel Blue Inka on your mat and spritz with water making a paint. Fill in the free areas of the butterfly.
8. Finish with mat and layer words or stamped sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed my blog this week.
