Tando Creative Challenge Blog

today is the start of a new theme over on the Tando Challenge blog…. this month the theme is:-

BROWN, GREEN AND YELLOW


This colour way seems to be very poplar at the moment, and as I'm the proud owner of a new set of Paperartsy Fresco paints…I just had to use them and created this board:-



My base is a mixed media board which I painted with a layer of nougat paint (all paint is paperartsy fresco) once dry I added Chutney (a reddy brown), yellow submarine (very bright yellow) and seaweed  (dark/limey green).  Once dry I stencilled part of the long stencil with paint - but, this didn't show up very well so whilst the paint was still wet I added embossing powder in brown….. a branch - painted brown with glossy accents added, an owl - painted brown with bright yellow eyes, the flowers were painted with the same paints as the background adding a small amount of colour each time to build up the depth….. 

I do hope that you'll join us this month - for one lucky player there is a choice of tando goodies up for grabs.  Hope to see you there.
