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!!

Embossing week

Hi, has anyone else been having problems with blogger? I could write up all my DT pieces but unable to get onto my own blog…still, never mind, here now….with my piece for this weeks "embossing" theme over on the tando blog…I decided to dry emboss with a Tim Holtz hallowe'en embossing folder…

I painted a mixed media board with black paint, then once dry ran it thro' my bigshot with the Tim Holtz embossing folder - I then added further paint and treasure gold to the raised images.  The word Halloween, is a new product for Tando and was painted using DecoArt Media fluid acrylics in paynes grey and quinacridone gold.

Pop along to the Tando blog and see some other embossing projects.
