TANDO CREATIVE - BLOG HOP

If your participating in the Tando Creative Blog Hop, you'll have reached my blog via the very talented Gez...as you will already know our theme for this blog hop is the Tando Book Plates...and very versatile they are too...

I just adore these book plates - the two sizes mean that they can be used on just about every project and being great chipboard you can decorate them to match your project...

I've used them on lots of projects, but, for this blog hop I've created two more:-

This tag uses two of the smaller bookplates - each one painted with acryllic paint and crackle paint added.



This big bookplate has been painted with acryllic and then a covering of matte accents added - the two leaves are from the new mini packs which are fab!

For all blog hoppers that leave a comment on everyone's blog there is a fab prize up for grabs.  If you get lost along the way just pop back to the Tando blog and link up from there.

Your next point of call is back to the Tando blog to finish off your hop!

2 very different projects, love the flower one but the gent's one is interesting in the way you have left the bookplates over the edge.
