Countdown To Christmas

Hi Susan here today sharing with you a recent make at my daughter's birthday crafty workshop held at Country View Crafts with some of her closest friends. They picked the Dimensional Art MDF Countdown to Christmas as their make
 They firstly applied gesso to all the individual pieces to seal the MDF and we had a fantastic lunch while we waited for them to dry. Two coats of paint were applied to each piece and then they glued & constructed. This is a great product as it also comes with it's own number stencil sheet. We found it easiest to cut the stencil sheet into individual numbers. Finishing touches were then applied and here are some of their fabulous makes, including mine which I have yet to finish :0)

I used PaperArtsy Paint, Chalk and added some Ranger Holiday Foiil Sheets around the edges. I've still got to put my stencil numbers on but I have a couple of days
Claire used PaperArtsy White Gold Chalk Paint & Little Black Dress, DecoArt Acrylics Santa Red, Ranger Gold Embossing powder

Amy used DecoArt Acrylics Santa Red and PaperArtsy White Gold Chalk Paint
Di used PaperArtsy Paint Chalk and DecoArt Acrylic Santa Red
We hope you like these and you still have time to order yours and create your own in time for the Countdown to Christmas
