DT Project... Take Time For The Hels

Gooooodly Morning Snazzyfans and a very happy February to you all! I can't believe the last time I was here it was Christmas Eve! Where did January go huh?  Anyways, I am here today with my main project using the fabby DT kit that we have been all playing with this month ... the fabulous cogs from the MDF Man.  I have had a ball playing with this very large cog - it is about 30cm across so you can get an idea that it's a cool size to alter.  Please do take time to have a browse on the Snazzy website, more and more delish products are being added regularly :O))

I started by colouring the MDF with cream paint ... applying with Cut & Dry foam in a pouncy motion, I find this is a good way to cover most surfaces and you don't waste a load of paint on a brush either.  Once the paint had dried, I used a Dylusions Stencil and some Embossing Paste to add diamonds to the cog.  This was dry within about 30mins so I got cracking with the flowers whilst I was waiting... adding layers of paper flowers together, some were plain white so I used Dylusions Sprays to alter the colour of them and dried them on my little wall radiator (don't ask what colour it has become lol)  A quick mist of Cosmic Shimmer spray made a little blingy sparkle for the flowers.

I used some Clearly For Art (Black) and diecut some hinges... cut them to size and used these as hands for my clock.  I added a couple of eyelets to just make the hands look a bit fancier... and then smidged on some gilding wax to sparkle them a bit.  I also added a smidge of gilding wax to the clock too... and then coated the whole surface with Multi Medium... once dried, I used Black Marble Dylusions Sprays to add some black splots to the piece.  Finally, I cut out some acetate butterflies that have lived in my stash for about 731 years... sticking them with the ever useful Cosmic Shimmer Glue. 

Please do scroll back through the DT posts this past few weeks... the girls have made some fabulous creations with the MDF Man's stuff.... oh and also CLICK HERE to leave a comment to be in with a chance of a random prize.  The winner will be announced next week :O)  Thanks for looking... TTFN!
