Our Home by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with an MDF That’s Crafty! door hanger.

What to do:

Apply a layer of Gesso to the door hanger, make sure it’s thoroughly dry.

Take 2 colours of PaperArtsy Fresco Paints (Bougainvillea and Dusty Teal) and apply with a moist baby wipe, dry thoroughly once again.

Paint a ‘hill’ in some green Fresco paints so the house has somewhere to sit upon.

Next step is to draw/stamp your house (I drew mine), colour in using just the translucent Fresco paints.

The trees are my own carved ones but any tree stamp will do or even a tree stencil. Once again, colour those in using a translucent Fresco paint, as you want to see the tree structure through the paint.

Add a little doodled fence in, a stamped sentiment from one of the new PaperArtsy Hot Picks and a generous splattering of white Fresco paint.

There you have a fun little door hanger……how about one for every room?!

Hope you like it
