Christmas Angel MDF Bauble.

Good evening Followers, Friends and Visitors,

Thank you all for your comments and for taking the time to visit my blog.   I do hope you enjoyed your visit.   Tonight I would like to share my fourth MDF Christmas bauble, which was made for Sue & Harvey of Imagination Crafts and was shown on their latest shows on 27th & 28th. August 2016, on the Hochanda T.V. Channel.

These baubles were designed by Lisa B. especially for Imagination Crafts and are a fabulous concept, as you can mix and match them, you decide which bauble goes to the back and which one goes on the front.   A spacer bauble can go between two of them, or you  can just use one only,  or 3, the choice is yours.   I decided to use only 2 this time.    It is just like 3D decoupage, except it is with MDF and not card lol!

(1)    Paint both the star and angel baubles with the white MDF paint

(2)    Paint the large star, back and front with the rich gold Starlight paint.
(3)    Using a black ink pad, stamp the Christmas text stamp onto the front of the star.   The star bauble will go behind the angel bauble, with the stars on the right.)

(4)    Lay the angel bauble on a piece of white card and draw around the angel.  Cut this out.

(5)    Paint the head of the angel with Platinum  and the halo around the angel's head, with the rich gold
         Starlight paints.   Glue 6 small, star gems around the halo.

(6)    Using your finger, dab the 3 colours of Sparkle Medium over the angel's wings.

(7)    Glue some material to the angel's dress and secure on the back of the white card.   Glue some white
         lace around the neck and the hem of the dress.

(8)    Paint the outside of the  angel bauble with the amethyst Starlight paint, adding a touch of the
         menthol, to tone the amethyst down a little.

(9)    Glue the finished angel to the MDF angel, using Magi-bond glue, bending the wings up slightly,
         then add some silicone glue under both wings.

(10)   Paint the trailing ivy Art Cutz with the Menthol and rich gold Starlight Paints and put to one side
          for the moment.

(11)   Glue a ribbon loop to the inside back of the bauble holder, then glue the 2 baubles together, using
          a good strong glue.   I used Imaginations Magi-bond glue.  (Just a little tip I'd like to share with you,
          I  put some scrap pieces of  paper over the edges of the bauble and clamp them together using
          bulldog clips over the paper, to hold the baubles together until the glue has set.)

(12).   Glue a ribbon bow to the holder.

(13)   Glue the painted trailing ivy Art Cutz to the top left of bauble front.

Well that's it finished my friends, hope you like it.   I will be back in a couple of days with another card I made for the Hochanda T.V. show, so catch you all then.

                                                                 Love and Rainbows,

                                                        Happy crafting.   Hugs   Jennifer xx
