Ali-Craft Workshop

Good evening

Wanted to share this box that I worked on at a great day out with the very inspiring Ali and Iain from Ali-Craft and Rob the MDF man and his lovely lady also called Ali.

My friend Sandra and I arrived at the MDF workshop just before 10 am and spent the day painting and inking, stamping and embossing and generally having a really good messy time.

The object of the workshop was a mdf box with a front drawer which had been painted with white acrylic paint.  Our aim was to alter the box and decorate it to our own style.  There were boxes of buttons and trinkets, flowers, lace and pearls of which we could help our selves to and alter with paint as desired.

We were also given a couple of chipboard tags to decorate and add to the box if we wanted to.

I stamped my box all over with a wood grain stamp after using distress stain all over to give it some colour.

I chose to decorate one of the tags with a Julie Nutting Prima Doll stamp. Ali had the full collection of the stamps but I chose this one and then stamped her again onto this lovely paper so that I could cut the dress out to dress her with.

The day progressed with fun and laughter chatting to the other ladies and we were provided with lots of tea/coffee and a superb buffet lunch.

All in all a super day and so nice to come home with this lovely box.

Thanks for looking
