colour post

Hi, its the colour week over on the Tando Creative blog this week and our colours for December are:-

lovely festive colours aren't they? so, I've made this:-

I have stencilled distress ink onto a card blank then added a swirly tree which had been painted with dark and light green acrylic paint then covered with stardust stickles.  Two baubles from the small bauble pack were painted with red acrylic paint and hi lighted using black and white pens…some stickles were added to the silver bands.

Pop on over to the Tando blog where the winner of Novembers challenge has been announced and also during the week there will be some great inspiration from the dt….

Oh dear, how long has it been since I last blogged? is anyone still out there?? lol

Today sees the start of a new theme over on the Tando Creative blog…and this week we are all concentrating on TREES… I wonder if any of my DT buddies will do Christmas Trees??  My offering is:-

 My base is the larger mixed media board which was painted using the decArt mixed media fluid acrylics and the tinting base… I then used Kaz's tree stencil - this is a fab stencil, you also get the tree mask and two overlays for the leaves… I then painted a mini owl and stamped a very old stamp - the sentiment of which is very apt.

Do pop on over to the Tando blog this week to see what my DT buddies have come up with and also don't forget that the challenge is open to everyone - have a go and you might win an early Christmas present!!

November - colour challenge

Hi, as its the first week of the month the theme over on the Tando Creative blog is a colour theme… and here is this Novembers colours:-

Here is my notebook:-

I used the Tando moroccan grid mask to add grungepaste to the cover - once dry I added paperartsy fresco paint….then I added some old gold paint, which is reflecting on the camera! - I also added grunge paste to a mini bookplate and once dry painted it with the old gold paint…a mini owl 2 was also painted and added to the base with the elastic closing strap as his seat!

Pop on over to the tando blog there are new posts most days…
