Anything Goes

Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone. This week over at Digi Choosday we are having an "Anything Goes" challenge, so come and join us. Here is my make for this week.

It started out life as a plain MDF pen holder that I got at a craft show last year.

I started with priming the bare would with white gesso putting two coats around the edges so I wouldn't have to cover them with paper. I then printed 2 sheets of paper out from the fabulous Dollie Goes Daydream East download. This is also available as a CD should you wish to get it that way.
I then covered the pen holder inside and out with the paper and added some faux stitching around the edge with a fine black pen. I then painted over the whole thing with Glassy Gel to make it more robust and to stop the paper peeling off. I then chose all my embellishments and printed them out, cut them out and then painted over them with Iridescent Paste to give them some shimmer. I then put them on 3D foam and glued them in place. Finally I made some rolled roses from the left over paper. This now has pride of place on my desk for pens that I use regularly.
