Joy To The World

Good evening! I'm sat here at my monthly blogging group in my town so thought I'd better get a blog post published!

I originally made this as my DT make for the next challenge over at That Craft Place but since decided to make something else!  This is inspired by the Christmas hymn "Joy To The World", although I've not created it with a Christmas theme!

I used the following materials / steps:
THAT CRAFT PLACE MDF / GREYBOARD: MDF Door Hanger. Greyboard Globe. MDF Musical Notes. MDF Flower.

MDF DOOR HANGER:  Gesso'd then brown paint thinly brushed onto it.  Sealed with Mod Podge Matte.

MDF GLOBE:  Acrylic Paint, Texture Paste, Spray Ink, Archival Ink.

OTHER PRODUCTS USED: Cardstock, Dovecraft Mini Alphabet Stamps, Archival Ink, Distress Ink, Glossy Accents, Vintage Sheet Music.
Most products available from That Craft Place.
