Design Team Project #1 Featuring JOFY Collection ....

Good morning Snazzy followers, wow where did June go to .... huge thanks to the design team for a fab month of projects using the Base Coat Collection. This month we kick off with some of the newly released JOFY stamps which you can see HERE.

For my 1st project I have used a MDF Heart as the base of my project. I used the following Fresco Paints .... Stone, Mud Splat, Hyde Park, beach Hut, Zesty Zing, Smoked Paprika, Autumn Fire, French Roast, Little Black Dress along with Crackle Glaze & Satin Glaze.

I started out by giving the MDF heart a base coat of Stone, drying with a heat gun before applying a thin layer of Crackle Glaze using a piece of Cut N Dry foam, again dry thoroughly before applying next coat of paint, in this case Mud Splat.

At this point I then dry brushed some more Stone to give the appearance of a more distressed feel to the heart.

Using Archival Ink (Jet Black) I stamped various images from the JOFY15 set.

I then used a selection of colours to add some highlights to the stamped images, before applying a layer of Satin Glaze to make the black of the images "pop" again. I then applied some Treasure Gold (Classic) around the edge of the heart then added some twine.

I will be back at the end of the week with another project using some more JOFY goodies. Don't forget to leave a comment on this 1st post to be in with a chance of winning the Random Comment Winner prize.

Until next time ....
