alterd MDF guitar

Hi folks  I recently made a purchase from Hobbilicious (link below) , some awesome items in their shop !(
They sent me a freebie of a guitar. 90mm x 220mm and as I am keeping my large pieces for a craft weekend with friends I decided to alter the guitar. I decided I wanted this to have a stand so I dug out some MDF ovals I had. .I stuck 2 together to give weight then I coated everything in imaginations craft wax. Using DP Crafter Companion I cut and applied to the front of my items. Then I used TH distress ink to edge everything.  Digging through my stash I gathered some bronze embellishments, a wood butterfly and heart, a clock (the works) , and scroll piece from Dusty attic. After inking the wood pieces I used Imagination crafts rusty patina  on the embellishments and on the papers. All the beautiful flowers are from I Am Roses. The bronze leaves are from my stash. The pearl trim I bought from a local shop .I scattered bronze chucky glitter in areas and glass onto the flowers. Using gesso I dabbed areas of the flowers. To attach the guitar to the base I dug out a grove with a craft knife onto the base and attached using hot glue .I used some round wood pieces to support the guitar back and front. This was such a fun piece to do , a sweet gift for my sister.

Using some of the stunning flowers from I am Roses (link below) I placed onto the centre piece and used bronze metal leaves and some wood stalks to decorate I added metal butterflies and a die cut heart,. Finally I sprayed with TH spray to create some splatters , then dripped some to create drips.

Hi folks. When I heard the words "Past and Rust" I immediately thought of my dads old car. A blue Hillman Hunter. He spent months repairing the car from top to bottom.

Flowers all die cut and rolled.- Music paper from my stash. -Frame - Tim Holtz. Car was die cut twice and I used Dusty Attic Rust powder. I also used the powder on pieces of scrap paper. I die cut the small lighthouse, seahorse. The Circles are snipart.I used TH Picket fence spray to speckle and drip onto the creation. Feather from my stash. Thanks for stopping by x
DP - Prima.
