I've posted this door hanger on WMC before but was told it wasn't clear. Just click on the image.
Took me only a few hours one night to complete it (the MDF already primed weeks before - waiting patiently for me to 'inspired'). I think the end result came out very nice hence why this design has become one of my favourites.

This is Rosamond with on Jo Sonja's purple background. It marks my first attempt at shading - I believe it has improves a lot since then.
The gold line at the mouth is by Ziggy Paint Marker (which I do not recommend, at all - others might differ). I've switched to UNI brand.

Using Cath Kidston Floral Gingham in blue, I decided not to use the checkered part. I shaded the background with Jo Sonja's blue diluted with retarder instead. I've also added a very thin gold line at the holder's top and base.

The red base is not included (It's actually one of my son's BYGA toy from IKEA that fits nicely). Definitely for aesthetic purpose only.
It doesn't matter which side it's facing, still as pretty, I think.
The design is Cath Kidston's Classic Rose.
Background colour is a mix of Plaid's Folk Art acryclic paint in Ivory White and a drop (maybe 2) of Baby Pink. The palest shade of pink I've ever made.
It still needs another 2 coats of varnish :-)

I fell in love at first sight with these 2 designs.
As you can see, I've changed the watermark style.

I started this project with the intention to make it more masculine(?) so there's no flower sans one, which I add at the very last minute (really can't help it). But it does complete the overall look, I think.The soft green background was achieved by mixing a tiny drop of Jo Sonja's Green with white gesso. The napkin is IHR's Late Summer Fruits.

It never caught my fancy (cos I always prefer damask) until I saw some antique china collection in a magazine.
Price: RM2.50 per piece
I really love the rose bit on this napkin - it's so shabby. In fact, I've butchered a couple of pieces just to create this pair for WMC's 3rd Exchange Gift :-P
Before - plain white background
Final treatment - a bit of pink shading using Plaid's Folk Art Baby Pink and 2 layers of varnish to seal it off.

Just stick the magnet at the back of decoupage and voila! it's an FM.
