Anything goes

Hello everyone!! its Anything goes week over on the Tando blog and I've added this project to the mix this week:-


The base is a heart from the heart grab bag.  The base of the heart was painted with a dark pink and then a layer of crackle glaze added and allowed to dry overnight before adding another layer of paler pink - all Paperartsy products.  Using the same colour palette I painted some mini butterflies and flowers and the harlequin piece from textures 1 pack.  All were then doodled with black and white pens….. I've photographed this late in the day so the crackles are not showing up too well, but, they are there!! lol

All chipboard product available from the tando retail site.

Pop on over to the Tando blog this week to see some more anything goes projects.

Tando love and hearts week

Hello, today its my turn to kick start the week over on the Tando Creative blog, and for a week of love, expectations or otherwise!!, the theme is:- Love and Hearts…

I decided to use the Andy Skinner Industrial wings kit for my base and came up with this:-



The base tag was stencilled using a text stencil and texture paste once dry a range of DecoArt media fluid acrylics were added, I also used the paints to paint the rest of the elements in the kit.  Once attached together I added some metal embellishments.

Do pop on over to the Tando creative blog this week for some love and hearts projects.

Paperartsy week 2

I am such a bad blogger and have neglected my little blog, but, mr mojo took a hike and its very slowly coming back, so I've decided to give it a helping hand by entering some challenges online… the first one is Paperartsy's week 2 - which is to use masks.  Well, I'm the queen of masks, I use them all the time and make them from post its…

So, as I'd just made this birthday card for my Aunt I decided to add it to the challenge…


The base is a white 6" x 6" card base which I used post its to mask off the edges…. I then stamped Kay Carleys flower from EKC01… masking off one flower head, I stamped again…both heads were then masked and two tones of pink distress ink added, using the darker to add stencilling - text and sequins…. I then removed all the masks.  Initially, I intended to colour in the flower heads but I liked the stark contrast of the white heads against the pink, so added some stickles and some gold ranger pearls and a stamped Happy Birthday finished it off.
