In the Garden

I'm getting a bit bad with this bloggin  marlarky aren't I...I must do better!!

Today is my turn over on the Tando blog to showcase my "In the garden" piece...and here it is...


I started off with a layer out of the arabian style arch....I painted this with two colours of Paperartsy fresco paints, I love the way these can be mixed when wet to soften edges when you have two contrasting colours.....once dry I added distress ink thro Kaz's dotted star mask..... using Jofy stamps I stamped grass along the bottom of the piece using the same colour distress ink.....the flowers (flowers with stems grab bag), mini rabbits and mini butterflies were all painted with paperartsy fresco paints mixing the colours whilst wet to add definition to the shape (well I hope it has!! lol) the rabbits had some distress glitter added to their tails..... Secret Garden was stamped onto cardstock and inked....

Don't forget every week there is a different theme over at Tando....pop on over and take a look.

You might be bored with blogging but you seem to have still plenty of mojo going around :-)
