Wedding Planner Holder
Naughty November 2019
By Natalie Parish

Whilst the November Theme was Naughty, I surprisingly ended up being Nice. Originally, I wanted to make the corset into an envelope holder to store important upcoming bills because I often put money in my brassier. It’s a safe place right. However, as I was running behind schedule and Erika had finished her gorgeously Naughty Moulin Corset, I felt another colour was needed. I jumped to white and the idea of a wedding corset quickly followed. In the end, my artwork ideas came together with a bit of inspiration from a very familiar wedding adage from the 1890s:
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.
So in keeping with my adage, I used some old lace pants, on a new MDF design board and as my blog was terribly late I wrote it on borrowed time and adding the blue brought the whole piece together.
Step One - Design Layout
Step Two – Seal boards and Attach Lace Pieces
Step Three – Embellish
Step Four – Make Stone Art
Step Five - Stone Art Pillars and Hanging Hooks
Step Six – Lace Up and Hang Up.
Congratulations you’re finished.
I hope you had as much fun as I did.
See you next month for Christmas.

The theme for this month is Seaside and our MDF kit is this lovely Seahorse. I was very excited to start designing this project and all the embellishments just made me even more exited! So, this is how I designed my Seaside September Seahorse.The theme for this month is Seaside and our MDF kit is this lovely Seahorse.

When the Stone Art is dry rub all the excess off and place it in a separate container to use for another project. Pour Powertex Ivory into a bowl. Pre-measure the rope around the edges of the Seahorse to make sure its not to long or to short. Paint a strip around the edge and dip the rope into the PowerteX Ivory and drape it around the edges of the Seahorse making sure you press it into the Stone Art.
Use Powertex Ivory to paint over the Stone Art and then dip the MDF embellishments into the Powertex Ivovy and arrange them onto the Seahorse. Pour some 3D Sand and balls in some areas and leave to dry (I used a hairdryer on cold and low to speed up the process) Paint another layer over the 3D sand and balls to secure them onto the Seahorse.
Use Bister Yellow, Blue and Red to spritz some areas with colour, as desired. Then mix Colourtrix Blue with Easycoat glossy and apply it onto the 3D Balls using a dry brush technique. Use some Easycoat glossy and Glue the eye on. I also used Colourtrix Rich Gold to highlight the shells and the MDF embellishments. More embellishments can be added anytime. I used a little glass bottle with a note and 3D sand in it to complete my Seaside September Seahorse. This project will dry quickly to touch and will harden in a few days. If you wait for this Seahorse to cure fully for 3 weeks it can
I had so much fun design and creating this project,
but I feel there’s something missing…
He needs a friend… coming soon!
