Hi, its my turn to post over on the Tando Creative blog, and today its March's colour theme which is:-

how fresh for spring hey?

And here is this months atc:-

The Tando ATC base was painted with Paperartsy fresco paint and once dry a lighter colour was stencilled using the Andy Skinner burning rubber stencil, once that was dry a darker colour was stencilled using the distressed mini diamond stencil. a flower from the flowers with stems grab bag was painted using the same colours as the base and the stem and leaves being painted in green,  definition was added using pens. A small arrow was painted and added along with some washi tape, stamped month and doodling.

During the week new colour themes will be posted, do pop on over to the blog and see what the other dt members have come up with.

Hi, its my turn to post over on the Tando Creative blog today.  This week is a new theme for us  - Recipe - we will have a different one each month, to test us all!!

So, this weeks recipe is:-

1 x stencil
2 x buttons
3 x colours

I've made this:-


My tag base was painted with two colours of Paperartsy fresco paint..blending as I went…once dry I stencilled the mini clock stencil with my third colour - black…. the two buttons (from the button grab bag) were each painted with one of the two colours and one button was cut in half…. the tag was edged with black paint.

Pop on over to the Tando blog to see some other takes on our first recipe!

Hi, hope you're all having a lovely Sunday.  Today is my last day off, its back to work tomorrow after a lovely, although, sicky, week off!

Due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to post my colour ATC for February over on the Tando Creative blog…so, using the Free for All week, it gives me another change to post…

So, the colours were:-

and this months ATC looks like this:-

the base is a Tando ATC and I've added paperartsy fresco paints, blending as I went…once dry I added blue over the top using the sequin waste stencil and added circles and lines using a polish lid and an old store card.  The same colours were using to paint the mini arrows and mini butterflies… the saying is from the wanderlust set of stamps by paperartsy.

If you get a chance pop on over to the Tando Creative blog there are new projects posted most days and a monthly running competition with prizes up for grabs… see you there!

Love and hearts…..

is this weeks theme over on the Tando Creative Blog… and I made this mixed media board as my project:-

The mixed media board is the larger of the two available and measures 74mm x 138mm.  I painted the base with ruby and magenta acrylic paints by Dana Wakely.  Then using the magenta and white paints I then stamped and stencilled over the top….when dry I added black to the edges and some doodling.  The stamped quote is a new stamp from Paperartsy, EDY18, and I can see me using this a lot!  A heart and wings from the Tando Wings and heart set were painted, doodled and the edges had some treasure gold added…..

Pop on over to the Tando Blog during the week for some more projects.  All projects are added to Facebook too, so please add the link to your profile.
