We have very exciting news today, That’s Crafty! is launching loads of new crafty wonderfulness live on Hochanda, where the fabulous Lauren Hatwell will be demoing this fun stuff and sharing how she uses it t make gorgeous things. You can watch on Hochanda live at 10am, 1pm and 6pm, or Hochanda Catch Up or pop over to the shop to see the new products. As part of the celebration I am sharing a project I made using the MDF Arch and my fellow teamies will be sharing more samples over the coming days and weeks. 
I started with a coat of gesso everywhere. For the front of the doors when closed I used the Modelling paste through the Feathers Dinky stencil. Next I mixed Clam Bake Beige Magical with Irridescent medium and gave the whole of the front and back a base coat.

When dry I used the modelling paste through the Silhouette Face and Wings Dinky stencils and painted them with the Pearl paint dabber. I also added small highlight drops of the other Magicals mixed with water her and there across the outside covers and the inside.  Next I stamped the text in randomly using the Sienna ink.
I transferred the digital image onto silk organza using the Transfer Artist Paper, cut the fabric to size and shape of the arch and layered with other fabrics and lace.

To complete the arch I added Glass Beads and Micro Beads on the cover and fabric and a few smears of the gold wax lustre on the wings.
