Dinosaur themed MDF wall hanging - Day 181 of my 365 day challenge


Dinosaur themed MDF wall hanging
Day 181 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

I have had real fun making this project - using Hobbycraft stamps and a large MDF wall hanging.



How I made this project:-

  • I first of all covered both the front and back of the wall hanging (approximately 32cm) in white card by tracing around it (marking each outline front and back).
  • I then coloured a landscape scene using Tattered Angels Color Wash paints (blues  and greens) - I added some white to represent clouds and let it dry.
  • Whilst that was happening, I stamped out a lot of the dinosaur stamps (from Hobby Art Stamps) and coloured them in using green alcohol markers etc.
  • I used a tree silhouette (from Stamps by Me) and stamped it towards the centre of the wall hanging using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then stamped a couple of the volcanoes again using the Versafine ink.
  • I then cut out all of the dinosaurs, trying to leave an equal white border around them all and stuck them on to the MDF using a mix of foam pads and PVA glue - I also used a piece of acetate to attach the pterodactyl on to it.
  • I coloured the two ROAR sentiments in using orange and green alcohol markers and glued them on.
  • Finally, I varnished the whole thing using Zig Varnish marker and left it to dry.
