Inspired by the Countryside Day 1

This week we are being inspired by nature.  As always cards, invitations, anniversary, birthdays and home decor  can all be linked with the countryside, the different elements and textures can be overwhelming  home decor.  This week I thought I would go for the home decor.  My idea could be schemed to go with the seasons however you can go for your own thing.

So here is my Home Decor project

This is what I used

Dutch Doobaddoo MDF Square frame
Dyllusions Marble black
Piece of patterned paper  to cover the background frame panel
Brush for paint.
Strong wet glue
Pack of 1'' burlap natural flowers
Pack of 1'' coloured burlap flowers
Scraps of various plain and patterned papers
Air dry paper clay white
Tiny amount of red coloured air dry pay clay to colour some of the white clay
Colouring medium of your choice
Alphabet Dies
Dreamweaver dies:- Leafy branch, Monstera leaf,
Daisy mix die cuts
Stampendous Daisy mix stamp set
Clear Magic  English leaves, flower frames
Dreamweaver Alphabet Dies


The instructions are done as individual projects for the frame shapes. Below is the frame with the box numbers in for ease of reference

1  The MDF frame and backing are painted with the Dyllusion Black Marble so all the edges and surfaces are covered.  The backing paper is cut 1/2'' smaller than the base of the frame. This is then stuck centrally on the base of the frame and the top of the frame is then stuck to this..  

2 The picture above shows the numbers of the panels so that they can be decorated. The following pictures are  showing each of the individualpanel

Box 1

  Box 2

Box 3, 5, 7, 11

Box 4

Box 6 and 8

Box 9 and 10

The squares were completed one at a time and once done a wall hanging thread was attached to the reverse side.  The project is complete.

I hope you enjoy my project and have a go.
