Colour Therapy 2 Inspiring Foliage - Polka Doodles - Create & Craft Samples (Part 3)

Happy Sunday everybody. 

Hope your weekend has gone okay and now that the festivities are behind us you are back into work and crafting mode.  To be honest, I never stop working or crafting.  I hate to be bored.... can't say I have ever used that word.  My mind is always active no matter what!!  I sit on the settee watching telly and my mind is always creating something.  While I'm making one thing, either crocheting, knitting or bookfolding, I'm all the while thinking of something else to make.  That is why the latest craze of adult colouring is great for us with busy minds and hands.  It gives us something to focus on and chill out and relax and create a bit of 'me' time.  It would seem every day another person has found the craze and been hooked.  It's quite interesting really to see the wide range of ages who have been 'taken over' by this hobby.  Well.... all us crafters already know about colouring don't we, ha ha ha, and the benefits to us. 

A few months ago Nikky Hall from Polkadoodles was on Create & Craft showcasing the latest adult colouring book collection called Colour Therapy Inspiring Foliage which is on CD and downloadable.  I was lucky enough to make some samples for the TV and here is the third of my samples using the collection I want to share with you. 

This started off as an MDF heart shape that I covered with blackboard chalk paint and then decorated with elements from one of the pages I coloured with Derwent Inktense Pencils.  Click on the Thumb Linkies below to be zoomed off to the Polkadoodles shop for full details of the collection.

These are the ingredients I used:

MDF Heart Shape
Blackboard Chalk paint
Ultimate Graphic Paper
Hessian Twine
Liquid Pearls White Opal
Wink of Stella Glitter Clear
Derwent Inktense Pencils
Printed the design from the collection twice so I could decoupage the flowers
Pinflair Glue Gel

I hope you like my make and it has inspired you to create something pretty.

I'll be back tomorrow to show you another one of my samples.

Take care
