Moving onto my project, I cannot get enough of the pearlized last project here too was using these awesome paints. Sharing a home decor project using a MDF plaque as the base. 

Colored another smaller MDF plaque with the "blush" shade & white acrylic paint to give it a distressed look. 

To add some texture I mixed impasto with paint & stencilled it randomly over the MDF.

Using the gold dimensional paint from Mont Marte I added a few highlights to the bricks.
Brought out some embellishments - chipboard shapes, flowers, rhinestones, handmade flowers, fence  from my stash & completed the plaque.

Here's the final look - 

All the embellishments & this small little altered bottle were glued using silicon glue.  

Used rub ons to add "Relax you are HOME"
to complete the plaque.

Coordinated the bottle using hemp cord & some gold -
