Mid Month Inspiration for Imagination Crafts - October Challenge - Anything Goes

Morning my friends, I would so love to report that I am feeling better, but as the day of my Niece's Wedding approaches, I am still suffering, been to the Doctors and as I have had 2 courses of Anti-biotics, they can give me no more..never heard of that before..

However I am here to bring you my Mid Month Inspiration Project for Imagination Crafts - October Challenge - Anything Goes.

MDF Blank - from the Dove set
MDF Paint - Chalk
MDF Paint - Jet
MDF Paint - Crackle Medium

I think I still need some practice with the Crackle effect, but I am getting there.  I tried with the Sparkle Medium to get a reflective effect, so I hope that worked. Some time there is a happy accident, and on the top right, the Crackle Medium did not take, but I left it, as it looked like a reflection of the star...what do you think?    Of all the World's landmarks, The Taj Mahal is by far my favourite, and I hope one day to see if for real.

Our fabulous Design Team have come up with more inspiration for you all, so pop over and see what they have come up with.   I am still in Awe, being on such a fantastic Design Team, I am sure you will agree with me, that their inspiration is thoroughly amazing.

Just a reminder that the prize for winning our challenge is:-
£40 to spend in the Imagination Crafts Shop.

Also there is still a couple of days left to enter the DT Call, so pop over HERE and see how. Good Luck.

So please play along to be in with a chance for winning.

Oh Avril I am so sorry to hear that you are still not better, is there nothing they can do apart from giving you anti-biotics? Surely they can do something more for you, you have suffered for such a long time. Avril considering you are not in the best of health your craft work is superb, the other makes I have seen in the above posts have blown me away and this one is no exception the image and crackle effect give off such a mystical air, fabulous work.
