I painted an MDF key shape with gesso and once dry, covered the complete shape in white pearl medium pan pastel. This gave the whole piece a pearlescent look. I then sanded back the edges, exposing the MDF and covered these with the white fine pearl pan pastel. Sadly my photograph do not show 1] the pearlescent shimmer, 2] the distress effect on the edges.
I printed out all the papers from the matching Little Kingdom CD, 4 designs to a page. I began to stamp all the different components of the houses on to the papers and then began randomly piecing the houses back together. It was great fun and can a really random effect. I glued each house in place and then covered the complete key with a layer of Maimeri matt gel medium. I added the hooks and wire hanger as my finishing touches.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this as it was a complete and utter "escape" piece. Yep, I just let my mind escape from the confines of my head, and do it's "own thing" ...
Where have you escaped to on a crafting adventure recent;y?
