1st November "letters" day

Over on the Tando Creative blog we're focusing on one theme per week, this week its

LETTERS

I'm more a "numbers" girl myself, but, I'll have a go at anything me...

So, here's my letters...or letter....


I know another journal page!!! I've a problem tho' these pages have been in a "practise" journal and it wasn't really made for this sort of thing!! although it was sold as an artist journalling book - think that possibly they had watercolours and sketches in mind!! lol so, I've gone and torn the page....think now I'm getting the hang of things I'll progress to a better book!!! lol

Anyway, this time I've started off using a Tando Mask and texture paste - if you've not tried the tando masks I seriously urge you to do so, they are really good for all mediums....paste, inks, paints, water...FAB results every time....then when dry I painted the page with several acryllic paints, then using Tando masks again used them with paint and distress inks.  Using water soluble wax crayons, paints, doodling and stamps I added colour and depth (I hope) to the page...The Letter, is Tando and was painted with acryllics, and then stamped with Ryn's fabulous waterdrop stamp before being edged with gold dauber...I love these pages you just add and add and add and play and experiment!!

Do call into the Tando Creative Blog on a regular basis, just about every day we have a post going up based on the theme for the week...and don't forget the regular blog hops too with a chance to win some great Tando products...
