All our of our designers have been busy this week, our next share is from Narelle, look what this lovely lady has done with our MDF bare tree

Narelle tells us:
 I've sponged the 38cm bare tree with mauve paint to give a bark/ texture look to the tree, and to give some warmth to the wood and have gone around the outside of the tree with kindyglitz.



 I've added some of the gorgeous soft mauve Dusty attic flowers and leaves on both sides of the tree so that it can be free standing anywhere in the house.



Stay tuned for more Designs by Narelle. In the mean time you can visit her very creative blog

Every month we think our designers are getting more clever as the days go by...  Checkout what Marele has done with out tree of hearts.

 This is what Marelle tells us about this gorgeous creation:


I am renaming this gorgeous Molossi MDF tree The Tree of Love, or The Tree of Hearts!!!
Products used : from Molossi: The Love Tree: Derivan Matisse Transparent Gesso
Student fine art white paint by Global
Student fine art red paint by Global
Modelling Paste
Chroma Student Arcylic paint in Magenta
Tim Holtz typewriter words








These trees can be used in many ways: paint them pink or blue and use them for guests to sign for Baby’s First Birthday!
They can also be painted white for wedding table centrepieces – or as “money trees at a wedding”
They would also make an amazing 21st present painted in the fave colour of the birthday boy or girl
They would also be fabulous for a Christening, Baby Shower, Mother’s Day Present – the list is endless!








I am going to mix media the tree and show you how easy it is to make it look a little different!!
I mixed some Derivan Matisee Transparent Gesso Pastel Primer with some white Student paint and gave the tree 2 coats of this mixture : remember to paint both sides!
Next I mixed some Global Student impasto paint in red with some Global white and made a pretty pink colour.  I coated the tree twice in this colour.
Next I took my old favourite some modelling paste and mixed it with some bright pink paint.
I dabbed this mixture all over my Love Tree and left it to dry.
I love the effect : it looks like floaty fairy floss! By using the Modelling Paste it has given the tree depth and of course my favourite word texture




Next I took Tim Holtz typewriter positive words and randomly placed them over the tree on both sides.
Next I used some very fine white craft ribbon and tied bows on either side of the tree, again  randomly.
I imagine this tree to be the centrepiece of a lolly buffet at a Birthday Party for a baby Girl turning 1!
What a beautiful keepsake for years to come.

We are thrilled to bring you another share today, our team has really been at it...
But this one comes from Jo a chipboard designer for Molossi.
 
This Is what Jo shares with us 
 
“TWO HEARTS THAT BEAT AS ONE”

It was with excitement that I ripped open the seal on my padded bag from Molossi to reveal my first chipboard Design Team kit - with my 10 year old daughter hanging over my shoulder adding appropriates oooohs and aaaaahs J
 Amongst the goodies, I was thrilled to find two lovely pieces that to me just screamed Wedding!  Recently I celebrated my 12th wedding anniversary and I’ve been scrapbooking now for over 10 years, however, scrapbooking my wedding has always been daunting for me.  Who else has said “I’ll scrap those special photos when I’m a better scrapbooker”????  My wedding photos always fell into this category.

The title piece I have used “Two Hearts that beat as one” with the gorgeous script font and those two sweet love hearts was just what I needed to take the plunge.  Add a flourish with a love heart and the set was complete.  So here is how I went  about it.......
Firstly, I masked off the two hearts and painted just the script with Coffee shop Glimmermist – this is my favourite glimmermist colour – it has a lovely gold fleck through it which almost floats in the colour when you apply dimensional magic over the top.
 



Next I coloured the hearts with a Chromatix red marker





To finish this chipboard piece I added the layer of Dimensional Magic over the top – I’m not sure if this image shows it clearly but as I mentioned it makes the gold fleck  float amongst the coffee colour in the glimmermist and gives a lovely shiny finish to your piece.  If you use a Tim Holtz non stick craft sheet underneath your chipboard when applying colour or gloss it will always lift off without leaving half your chipboard behind on the backing surface.



Now onto that beautiful flourish – I started by colouring the flourish itself with a green Gellyroll pen from Sakura.  These pens again have a hint of glitter in them – can you tell I’m a bling girl!  I coloured the heart again with the Chromatix marker – these are the American Crafts answer to Copics.  Again I coated the entire piece in Dimensional Magic.





Now with these pieces all set aside for the Dimensional Magic to dry I could get started on the background piece for my layout.
My supplies were as follows:
1 x 12” white cardstock - Draw a frame 1” inside the outer edge of the white card and cut the centre out – save this piece for another project
Papers are all from Kaisercraft Pickled Pear range.
Trim your background patterned paper to 11 ¾ x 11 ¾ “ - Ink your edges and adhere in the centre of  your white cardstock frame.
Trim your 2nd piece of patterned paper 11” x 6” and punch a border to the top and bottom using a border punch.  Again ink your edges.  I have also adhered a border sticker to the bottom of my piece – a bit of washi tape or a piece of ribbon would also look fabulous.  Across the centre of this piece I have attached a piece of May Arts ribbon mesh. 
Now select another piece of patterned paper and cut to 4.5” x 6”  Distress the edges of this one or ink if you prefer.  Approx 1.5” from the top tie some Bakers’ twine and knot off in the centre.
Adhere these two pieces as below – You don’t see the bottom of the dark piece so I’ve actually given you a smaller measurement so as not to waste the paper.  This is the 4.5 x 6” measurement.



Now start layering.  Add your photographs using foam mounting tape and then layer your chipboard on top of them.  I have adhered my chipboard using the Dimensional Magic I used to glaze it with – a great glue as well as gloss. 
Add a doily to the bottom layer of your flower cluster on the bottom left and then start layering your flowers.  I’ve tucked a butterfly die cut made with vellum on top of the floral cluster using a glue dot.  Flowers are Petaloo, Kaisercraft and Meant to be felt die cuts.  I have also used a Martha Stewart branch punch to add some more green into the cluster.  A couple of gold brads in the centre of the Kaisercraft flowers and the job was done.





Add in some journaling details – mine was the name of the resort and the date and also the dymo look stickers which were also in the Kaisercraft Pickled Pear sticker sheet I used – I distressed the edges of these before adding them above the bottom photograph.




Thanks for stopping by and checking out my first layout for Molossi.  I’m heading back to the scrap room now to play with the other goodies that were in my pack J
