I have been asked to do a workshop I thought
i`d would use the wooden MDF Plaques that I had just ordered.
They are stunning & a lot larger than I expected them to be.
So for this workshop I have used the following

Products Used for the Workshop
Acrylic Paint – Green
Heart Wooden Plaque Workshop
Place the mdf plaque on the non stick craft mat & paint a layer of acrylic paint over the surface.
Set the plaque aside to dry or speed up the process by using a heat tool
Apply a good amount of the one stop crackle.
Now using the paint brush spread the crackle evenly over the acrylic paint.
Make sure you clear the brush & mat straight after use.
Now dry the glaze using a heat tool & watch the crackles appear.
Swipe the vintage photo ink pad over the whole surface of the piece.
& then wipe away the excess ink. This will ensure the ink has gone into the cracks.
Loop a length of the string through the holes in the plaque
Tie the ends with 2 large knots so they don`t come back through the holes.
Print off the decoupage set of the roses in a tin holder onto gentle gloss photo paper.
Use the decoupage snips to cut out all the pieces on the sheet. Glue all the pieces onto the
2nd largest heart leaving the base layer free for the moment.
Once the piece is dry glue just around the outer edge of the piece leaving the top edge free.
Place the base panel onto the plaque & then add the prepared layer onto the base.
TOP TIP. Leave the decoupage snips in the centre
of the panel to allow a small pocket for a note to be added.
Using this technique will stop the decoupage from falling down due to the weight of the glue.
Place a sentiment on the top of the piece to finish the design off.
Optional: Make a small card to fit inside of the heart pocket. The embossed heart has been made using the EZ Mount board.
Here is the completed project.
