Decorated with Graphic 45

I bought a small set of MDF drawers from The Works for £1-99 thinking of decorating one each for my grandaughters,and had just the papers.When I checked my acrylics I didn't have the right colour to match --soooo for my first attempt used my last bits of Graphic 45 French Country and the black acrylic I already had.I gave them a coat of gesso then black acrylic,oddments left from Graphic 4,a chipboard tag, a wooden label as a stopper,and made an easel card for the top.I just hope they have some left when I go back lol.
