is on all my projects at the moment, so this weeks theme over on the Tando Creative blog is right up my street!! lol
This is my piece:-
Taking a Tando mixed media board I added colour using Dina Wakely heavy acrylic paints… once dry I added paint thro' the following stencils:- sequin waste, mini stencils - distressed sequins and distressed diamonds, I also added paint using a lid off an ink bottle and using an old text stamp…. whilst this was all drying I painted my heart, butterfly and arrow, all Tando minis - these were then doodled on using black and white pens and a little bit of bling added. Once my board was dry, I drew a house and painted using the Dina Wakely paints….. all elements were then added to my board along with "cherish" which is a Tim Holtz script die…. I have been put off buying these dies as I was concerned about how to adhere these, properly, to projects - but, whilst watching the lastest tag creation by Tim Holtz he used a new zyron sticker machine, added adhesive, added the die and cut it - thereby adding adhesive to those fiddly little bits… the sticker machine is quite expensive, so, I put my thinking cap on - I have lots of double sided sheets which I use when I use the Ten Seconds Metal sheets, so tried that, et voila - it works and sticks with no fuss or bother!! result - I see another purchase coming on…
Don't forget to pop on over to the Tando blog - there are more painty projects coming this week and don't forget there is an opportunity to win some prizes!!
