A Crown from the Palace

One more sample from my weekend at Alexandra Palace recently.

This hanging ornament was made using one of the Pronty MDF crowns (you get 6 in a pack). Luckily for me, Sam had her crop-a-dile hole punch with her so I was able to punch a couple of holes in the MDF to later add the ribbon. (As explained previously, I didn't take any crafting tools with me as I wasn't expecting to demonstrate but the Creative Expressions gang were all so lovely and helped me out with bits and pieces). 

I painted the crown plus the two Art Parts (the star and the LOVE) using the Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Paints. I then stenciled through the Sunburst Mask from That Special Touch, using the Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste. I added a vintage silver button embellishment from Creative Expressions and a paper heart with the word Joy on it. I didn't have any adhesive foam to raise the heart up, so I edged it with some Distress Ink to make it stand out a bit.

Happy crafting!
