Faery Doors

Hi, the theme over on the Tando blog this week is Faery doors - Tando now have a Faery Door Kit 1 out and I have used this for my project:-

The door base was given a coat of dark brown acrylic paint and then a layer of Paperartsy Crackle glaze - the green is the new edition paint by Paperartsy called "Granny Smith" …once dry the edges were given a brushing of distress ink.  The bricks were painted and then dry brushed.  I would seriously recommend that you keep all packaging until you have adhered these bricks to the actual base!  I made a pair of wellies out of clay and molded a plant pot - three flower minis were painted and doodled…the post box was cut from some corrugated packaging….the toadstool is in the kit and was given a dusting of fairy dust!! 

Pop on over to the Tando blog for more Faery projects during the week.

Tando Creative - Book covers week

Hi, its book covers week over on the Tando Creative blog and today its my turn to share my project:-

I painted the base with the new Paperarsty limited edition paints - I just love Granny Smith!, I also used the same colours to stamp onto the base.  Doodling with white and black pens was then added.

The "straps" were adhered together and then I added the nuts - I then painted these (with Granny Smiths) and then dry brushed before adding treasure gold.

Journal was handwritten onto the base and doodled.

Pop on over to the Tando creative blog and see some more book cover inspiration.
