Boo! Haha, gotcha. Well, for those that recognise this festival of spirits I’d like to wish you a happy Halloween and to share an MDF modification that I recently completed.
The main kit was the “Shrine” MDF kit from Creative Expressions.
A lovely simple project with just six pieces that fit together logically.
To start I covered with Graphic 45 papers, assembled the shrine and added some distressing with black acrylic paint.
I then rifled through my die collection and found a few swirly dies from Spellbinders.
These were cut from Cardstock four times each and then glued together.
I knew that I wanted a shelf and a cover for the aperture so I created two versions.
One was a simple rectangle and the other I cut notches in so that it would slot into the aperture in the shrine.
All of these elements where them given a coat of black acrylic, allowed to dry, and the dry brushed with some iridescent white paint to give them a metallic finish.
The ‘wrought iron’ was then glued in place on the shrine using PVA glue.
To fining I filled some Tim Holtz Corked Vials with glitter glue and arranged these on the shelf.
I think I’m ready to open my love potion shop now … fancy a closer look?

So, what do you think?
Have you modified an MDF kit in the past? It’s really good fun and makes a shop bought kit truly unique and original.
Thanks for reading and don’t forget to pop back again tomorrow for November’s colour challenge.
Bye for now.
