Craft-Room Challenge - Wood

Thank you everyone that entered the Trees and/or Leaves Challenge - your entries were fabulous, I shall be posting the winner and my top three next week.

Zoe has chosen the theme for this challenge and she has chosen Wood.  This is what she has to say about the challenge.
When I saw the stand at a local craft show I had to get a selection of goodies to try, wood is a great medium to work with and this time we would like you to include something made of wood in your entry.   Real wood not an image be it twigs from the garden, some bark, or a wooden embellishment from the craft shop.   Anything just keep the wood as the main focus.

We have another New Sponsor this time The MDF Man no banner but go and take a look at all the goodies he has ready and waiting for altering.   He has given us a selection of his Cogs as a prize for one lucky person drawn at random.

Last year I went to an Andy Skinner Image Transfer Workshop so for my DT piece I decided to do some image transfers on some wooden coasters that I bought from the MDF Man at Ally Pally earlier in the year.

These are the coasters before I altered them.

These are the coasters after I altered them.

I used some Da Vinci images printed onto copy paper with an inkjet printer.
I also used white and light buttermilk DecoArt Americana paint, multi matte medium, Americana DuraClear Satin Varnish and Treasure Brass on the edges.

The rest of the DT have made some fabulous pieces and would love you to visit the Craft-Room Challenge to take a look.
