Hello, hasn't it turned cold all of a sudden, shouldn't moan really as we've had a lovely summer.
This week over on the Tando Creative blog they are featuring two very talented designers, Andy Skinner and Nathalie Kalbach…I couldn't decided which one to do, so decided to create two pieces:-
First up, Andy Skinner…. whenever I see anything of Andy Skinner the "rust" effect is always dominant so that had to be my base….my substrate was the mixed media board by Tando and then I added some DecoArt fluid acrylics and then using the new typeface stencil I used the bumped technique to create my background…
I then used the same paint and taking the industrial elements kit painted some elements and added to my base to create this:-
Hi, October already can you believe it? Halloween nearly upon us and then it will be the run up to Christmas! where has this year gone?
Today is the colour theme over on the Tando blog and here are Octobers colours:-
Gorgeous aren't they?
and here is ATC no 10…
I do start off with the same, or similar colours but everything ends up darker!! lol - so for my spooky ATC… I've added decoArt fluid acrylics and then stencilled over the top with black paint and cobweb 2 mask…. this was then outlined in white pen…some washi tape was added before adding my bat and painted mini pumpkins which have been over stamped using the Andy Skinner industrial stamp (Stampendous)… doodling finished it all off.
Hi, this week over on the Tando blog is "anything goes" and I'm sharing my mixed media board:-
The base was coloured using decoArt fluid acrylics and then various paint doodles were added…stencilling using the mini masks - brick and distressed sequins…. black paint was then brushed in from the sides….a Karens frame - large gothic arch was cut to size and paint added, then overstamped… the windows and doors had doodling added…some washi tape finished it all off.
This week over on the Tando blog we are showcasing the Mixology kits…what is Mixology? Mixology is a retreat run by Tando along with DecoArt and stampendous - it is held twice a year and there are specific projects each time using Tando kits, each one designed for the weekend.
Hi, can you believe that its August already, one clear soul on Facebook recently put up how many Fridays til Christmas!! ummm say no more!!
As its the first Monday of the month its a new colour theme over on the Tando blog. So, that means another ATC from me, I'm getting a lovely selection of ATC's now and really enjoy working on the smaller size again… its nice to step back sometimes isn't it…
