Lost in the Darkness

Last month, I wrote about decorating shaped MDF pieces from an amazing little company I’d found online, Diverse Woodworking. I had so much fun doing up one of their swans that I wanted to do a second, companion piece to it. As my first swan was white and pink, I wanted to make my second black and maroon. A white swan and a black swan. My very own Swan Lake, if you will.

I pretty much did the exact same thing with my black swan as I did with my white. I used Prima Marketing’s Midnight Garden collection to decorate my swan. I adhered a piece of the paper collection to the swan using Mod Podge, and layered it with some heat embossed chipboard pieces, Midnight Garden Flowers and ephemera. My final touch was to add one of the new Parisian Hat Pins from Prima and a Halloween quote chip by Tim Holtz.

I am absolutely loving these MDF shapes! So much so, my next project-in-progress is a steampunk octopus. Hopefully he will be finished soon!
