Tando Wednesday

so, Joanne and I are continuing to explore different techniques using the Tando white and grey boards - this Wednesday we are using paint.....

 I have used four wavy twinchies and painted them with acryllic paint before spritzing on paint and ink sprays and letting them run down the board.  This stamp, one of the first I ever bought, was then stamped ontop of the four twinchies and then coloured in using water colour paints and wax soluble pencils.  The edges were then sanded and coloured using distress inks and then a bit of gold dauber over the top.... then....


 I was mounted onto my board from last week.....watch this space for the next addition...

All of my pieces just lately are so dark and I really wanted to show how the white board reflects the colours of the paints...this piece was made using dylusions paint and ink spray...

see how vibrant the colour is....problem is what to do with it?? lolxx

Do pop on over to the Tando blog and see what Joanne has created - also have a browse thro' the blog and see what the other talented dt have created.

btw, Thank You to all that have enquired after Josh - unfortunately, Josh is no better and is still in hospital - they are awaiting delivery of a drug to try, so fingers crossed he'll soon be back home with us....xx

Hello my lovely, so sory to hear about Josh, I do hope he's on the mend now and back home with you all. Love the projects you are doing for Tando - it's great seeing products that I wouldn't know what to do with being used to such great effect xxxxx

That's so cool the way you dive in and create new stuff like that.. I love the way twinchies.. very cool textured look to them.
Keeping all good thoughts for your Josh!
To answer your question..I would describe Riley as wary of the little dogs.. but he growls at them if they get too close and they take off running so no problems as of yet!
