Door Hanger or USB storage station ???

Are you, like me, forever mislaying USB sticks? Even as I type this blogpost up, I am looking about the craft area as I know there is a 4th one about somewhere. When it does turn up, and it will, I'll have to add another hanger for it so it doesn't go wandering again :-) 

So, for the recipe................

Take an MDF door hanger. I get mine from Dreamees  but you may have your own preference (that's the beauty of craft - plenty of choice lol)

I started with a cog mask from 'That Special Touch' and applied Tesco Value filler through it. Lifted it carefully then dried it with a heat tool. I have the small heat tool so it's not such a blast of heat.

Once dry, I coated the whole hanger with purple Radiant Rain paint from Clevercuts

After that, I just threw whatever was close at hand at it. 
Orange Radiant Rain paint,
Cosmic shimmer gilding wax,
liquid leaf copper metallic paint,
Pinflair buff it
to name but a few.

Each addition gave it extra 'life' and added texture.

Even some shimmer sprays over the top for even more depth

The hooks don't go right the way through - the screw shafts are too think for the depth of the hanger - but galloping horses ain't gonna stop to look at the backside that closely :-) 

I painted up some wooded hearts for the USB sticks and added a bit of ribbon

All in all, a job well done I think :-) 

Hope you like it and thank you for stopping by my blog today xx

  1. I think it's great Cazz both in creation and in use! Love the texture (the filler has worked great) and the colours have built up beautifully.
