About Me

Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
My name is Clare I live in Nottinghamshire and work in education supporting students as my full time job but like to make cards, craft and plan as a hobby. I have recently taken up arigurumi crochet, the perfect autumn/winter hobby. I have also decided after a number of years off to pick up my guitar and learn to play again so due to metal strings and crochet hooks the ends of my fingers are slowly toughening up.

Ratatouille Kitchen Hanger

I'm quite liking these MDF projects.... Decided that it was time for something for me instead of others. The first job was to paint the back and edges of the hanger as I felt it would make the piece look 'finished' once done.... My other half was good enough to do this for me whilst I was at work, bless him.

The image is called "Ratatouille" and is a piece by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary. I love it, mind I love all Krista's images... I coloured her FS1/3, TN1/2, CR8 and some BGR but can't remember which  off the top of my head (sorry). I coloured her eyes grey originally but decided to add a touch of TB1 blue too..

I used some Creative Memories tulip paper I had in my stash to cover the front of the piece and added a strip of red gingham card across with a piece of red grosgrain ribbon. I felt that the image needed a plain background to make it stand out so used a piece of red card to do so. I also cut a red heart out of the same card and added a white one, to which I added my own sentiment "Heart of the Home" because that is what the kitchen is :-)

I made three rolled flowers with the papers, two gingham and one tulip so that they blended with the piece and added a white paper rose from my stash in the top right corner also adding a 'spoon' charm.

I wrapped the stem of a paper rose around a small glass jar which I filled with spaghetti and stuck it in the bottom corner and also made another gingham flower (which I'd used a Dreamees stamp to create the template) to sit against it and threaded another paper rose through it's centre.

All in all, pretty happy with the result. Would love comments please xx
