See the stars plaque


Hi There! I hope you are okay and keeping well. I've got a little mdf plaque mixed media project for you today. Here is how I made it.

I stuck some mdf pop outs (although these aren't in the online store at the moment, you can get them at The Craft Store here) onto an mdf tag with two holes added to the bottom and painted them with black gesso.
Next I used a dry brush to lightly paint white gesso across the pop outs.
When this was dry I sprinkled with Pretty Gets Gritty Explosion powders in Mermaid, Neptune and Unicorn.
These were activated with water from a mister bottle.
Once the explosion powders were dry I used the unicorn white ink to stamp the border, circles and swirls onto the mdf.
I selected 6 pop out stars and sprayed them with Dina Wakely gloss sprays and left them to dry
I stamped the sentiment using the white ink on to heat resistant acetate and heat embossed it with fine detail white embossing powder.
I stuck the sentiment to the bottom of the mdf using gel medium.
I added some black ricrac through the holes and stuck the stars to it using gel medium. I also gave it a light spray with a spray varnish to seal it.
And here it is hanging on the wall. 

Here are links to the products I used:

I hope you like it. Thanks for looking!
