WOW week with San

Oh My ..... Its July, where did that half a year go?

San here with a little update from WOW

There have been a few changes in the design team for the rest of this year. We said a sad goodbye to Gilly Lester and Kaitlynne Roil, who are both off on new creative journeys. We have advertised for a new member and we received so many awesome applications, we are having trouble selecting a new member.....we will be announcing our new DT member very soon!

Here at WOW, we have also decided to change our blog and add some even more fun for everyone to play along with us and maybe win some awesome chipboard.

You will notice our format will include blog posts from our talented team and a NEW RELEASE WEEK, where you get to see the newest of our chipboard product and how the team use them.
And then watch for the CHALLENGE along and win win win!!.

So to start the new financial year off.......its me!!

Today I am sharing with you another product that WOW make and that’s MDF!
We can make almost anything in MDF, ask your local scrap store to help you if you want to make a special designed mini or frame.

So...we had a little scrap-off challenge at WOW and Wendy Smith and I were given the same product to use on this fabulous 12x12 shadow box. (gotta say the box itself is a great way to show off your layouts and add a lovely decorated piece to your decor)

My frame was designed to have pages changed as I pleased.

I have used gesso, both black and white underneath can spray pain in silver and gold, then dried them with a heat gun, this makes the gesso pop and the paint turns to a metal look.

All the add-on were made of MDF too.....the Gates, flourishes and Butterflies. This heavier material is awesome to have on OTPs, as they are handled much more than a layout.

I have basically left the MDF the burnt look.

On the vines, I added a scrapping of green pastels to the leaves, and then gave the whole frame a spray of a webbing mist to add splotches of white all over it.

so here is it finished.....with black rose ribbon, red lace and a few mini roses..and a big gold bow!

Wendy also received the same products and here is how she used it.

OTP frame

She misted her MDF elements (butterflies, gates and flourishes) in Glimmermist ‘Candy Apple’ and Mr Huey’s ‘Calico Shine’


She has used her frame as a shadow box,
and has put patterned paper and photos in it’s base


She has complimented the frame by adding a little birdhouse
and loads of flowers and pearls


It was heaps of fun to go head to head with Wendy lol
...and see how different they turned out.

Worth a thought for a fun 'get your mojo going' challenge with a freind or two...grab each of you the exact same stuff, give a time limit and go for it...never know what you might come up with.

And if you are thinking of a great gift idea for that hard to buy for person, what about one of these awesome 12x12 shadow boxes, decorated in colours for their home. Pop into your lss and get them to order you one 

See you Wednesday
San x
