Embossing week

Hello, its embossing week over on the Tando Creative blog and today its my turn to share my embossed piece:-

The base is a tag from the tag mega bundle pack.  This was given a coat of acrylic paint, once dry the tag was embossed using an embossing folder and then a coloured wax was added.  I then added three layers of embossing powder and melted on the third layer I stamped into the molten powder, I used the same technique on a heart from the heart mega pack… the heart was then tied with string and a key added…..

Do pop on over to the Tando blog and see what other embossed projects have been shared.

Hello,  I'm slightly late posting today I've had one of those weeks and today was my Uncle's funeral…so, a bit behind, but, here better late than never!

So, for May the colour way is:-

and here is media board 5/12

The base is one of the smaller media boards which was covered with text paper and then watercolour paints added….. some splats and doodling was added to the base… A text stamp was embossed and then three stars which had watercolour paints added and then a layer of crackle glaze were attached to finish off the piece.

Papered it...

Hello, today its my turn over on the Tando Creative blog.  The theme this week is to use paper…

Here is my papered large tag, from the mega tag pack:-

the base had text scrapbook paper adhered and then the edges sanded before having distress ink added.  I then took the dot stream stencil and added further ink to the base, further pieces cut from scrapbook paper are added along with a couple of hot air balloons from a Graphics 45 pad.

I love making master boards and have lots of cut offs sitting in the little basket on my desk, i dug out a piece and adhered this to a large butterfly from the butterfly mega pack… a key embellishment was added for its body.

A heart and some flowers from the mini packs are then covered in book paper and then inked around the edges.

There are lots of projects over on the Tando creative blog this week, pop on over and take a look.

Tando colour week

Hello to all those that stop by my little, and seriously neglected, blog… today I'm sharing with you my Tando Creative April colour offering:-

This is Aprils colour palette:-

and here is mixed media board number 4:-

The base was the small board and using the Andy Skinner "have your say" stencil I added texture paste to the base… this was then painted with acrylic paint.  I used the same paints to colour houses from the whimsical house set 1 and a large house from the hearts mega pack.  Some doodling finished it all off….

There are some fabulous pieces and great inspiration over on the Tando blog do pop on over and have a look.

March's colours

Hello, what a cold start to the week we are having, will the promise of heavy snow materialise tho? I hope not!!

Today starts the March Colour theme over on the Tando creative blog and its my turn to showcase my piece, here is the colour palette:-

As you will know, if you visit my or Tando blogs that this year for the colour weeks I am using the Tando Creative media boards - so here is mixed media board 3/18

This month I have used the 80 x 116mm board and sprayed it with water letting it soak into the base, when semi dry I then peeled back layers and rolled the corners…. I also applied this technique to my butterflies (the grab pack of butterflies) this time lifting the top layer off totally…. I left the pieces for several days to ensure that they were completely dry and then I added the purple colour tones to the base and doodled with matching paint, and then painted the butterflies, doodled and added some bling…. 

Do pop on over to the tando blog this week for some more colour pieces.

Anything goes….

Hi, over on the Tando blog this week the theme is anything goes - this is where there is no set theme and we can go with our creative flow….lol

So, as its Valentines tomorrow I have made this:-

The base was taken from the substrates pack and the other three hearts were from the hearts mega packs - all available on the Tando creative retail site.  All four hearts were painted using acrylic paint with a deeper red used to add definition to the edges.  A bit of doodling, stamping  and a stamped sentiment finished it all off…..

Hope you have a lovely Valentines day tomorrow.

If you get the chance pop on over to the Tando Creative blog site and see what the other DT members have created.
