You saw it on Hochanda….

Hello, this week over on the Tando blog the DT are sharing the pieces that were shown on the recent Hochanda show which aired the 24th May.

I was sent the shadow frame set.  This set consists of 5 different shapes with a solid base and then a larger frame and inner and a smaller frame and inner….. Its strange how the mind works Di designed the kits so that the smaller frame sat inside the larger frame and this would then create a lovely shelf for the minis (which were provided with the kits for Hochanda)… like this:-


hence why they are called shadow frames??

but, me being me used the rest the other way round, so that the larger frame was secured to the base and the smaller frame sat on top…


I think this is my favourite piece….


My window


I added a wire thro the middle and threaded on beads before adding a butterfly



Using an inner I created:-


I was absolutely thrilled that all of my pieces were shown at sometime during the two shows…. to say I was shouting at the telly is an understatement !! lol

Pop on over to the Tando blog and see the other wonderful Hochanda makes from the DT.

June 2017 colour ATC

Hello and welcome to my little corner of blogland… today I'm sharing with you my ATC for June for Tando Creative….this months colour palette is:-


what a fab zeisty colours… and here is June's ATC:-


The base is the Tando Creative chipboard base which had acrylic paints added… once dry I then stencilled the tree and leaves stencil, this stencil comes in three parts so fabulous value for money, today I've just used the tree… I then used the sequin waste stencil…before painting my owl in funky colours… a stamped sentiment finished it all off.

Pop on over to the Tando Creative blog this week and see what the other DT members have created.

Tando Creative colour - May 2017

Hello to May!! can you believe we are now starting the 5th month of the year…how fast is time flying this year!

This week is the May Colour theme over on the Tando blog and here is this months colour scheme:-


such lovely bright and clean colours for the start of spring…

In keeping with my theme of monthly ATC's for 2017 here is ATC 05/17


I added Paperartsy paints in Chartreuse, captain peacock, mermaid, vanilla and dusty teal to the chipboard base atc…. I then stencilled and stamped using the same paints…a piece of textures 1 and a large butterfly were also painted using the same colours - once dry some doodling with black and white pens was added… a rub on sentiment was then added along with some metal and bling.

Pop on over to the Tando blog this week to see what other DT members have come up with…

Tando on Hochanda

Hello all… where is this year going? already more than half way thro' April - pretty scary hey….

Last month Di from Tando went onto the Craft channel Hochanda and presented two very successful Tando shows… she was a real TV natural and she demonstrated loads of great techniques during the shows… I was really excited as several of my tags and my fairy door where shown during the shows… boy, I was over the moon… here are the pieces:-






The bases were the long tags, a small and large mixed media board and the whimsical houses…

Here is my fairy door:-


with added clay boots and flower pot…. lolxx

Tando Creative - Embossing Crystals

Hello, hope you're all having a good week….. today its my turn over on the Tando blog and this week the theme is embossing crystals…

Here is my finished piece:-



So, the base is a large media board - these boards are great and don't buckle or twist with heat…and believe me this board had loads of heat….I initially added some grunge paste thro' a stencil (yep it is under there somewhere!! lol), I then added some stampendous frantage crystals, there is blue, black, gold and aged spice all thrown at the board in various amounts and at different stages… be careful when heating such quantities as the board becomes very hot! also the enamel is also very hot so mind fingers! inking up an old text stamp with clear ink I then stamped into the hot enamel…. I then took three stars from the grab bag of stars and added aged spice and gold crystals…. the edges were given a touch of black paint to make them stand out… the sentiment is hand written.

Do pop over to the Tando blog, there have been some lovely projects this week…and more to come.
