Shimmer and Shine

Hello everyone, welcome to my blog. Today starts a new
two week challenge at Make My Monday. 
Sian has chosen Shimmer and Shine, please pop over to 
check out the fabulous creations by the Design Team.
After visiting a recent craft event I knew what I wanted to make
for the challenge. I met a lady called Wendy who was demonstrating
with some products, she gave me and a few other ladies a talk
though on how to achieve shimmery and shiny buttons on a piece
of MDF.  Here is her blog, just keep scrolling down and you will find
the button placque, The product she used is amazing, I bought two 
colour bottles but will be buying more and making more as soon
as I can, I greatly enjoyed making this. Hope you like it.
With all shimmery and shiny projects the glimmer sadly does 
not show as it truly is.  Please take my word for it.
