Winter Holidays

Hi, winter holidays makes you think of somewhere tropic, blue skies, lots of sun, sea and sand…ummm instead its the theme over on the Tando blog this week and today I'm sharing the project I recently had published in Craft Stamper…

The base was a Tando Art room base and we had strict guidelines to adhere too.  I found it incredibly hard to photograph this are there is so much bling and sparkle on it, see a copy of the latest craft stamper for much better pictures!!

Pop on over to the Tando blog for more Winter Holiday projects..

Hi, its my turn to start off the new weekly theme over on the Tando Creative Blog…and this week our theme is:-  BLING - well, with Christmas approaching very fast its a great theme to kick start all those projects and cards we have, well I have at least, still to make…

So, here is my BLING project:-

I choose two circles from the circle grab bag and painted with white paint, I then painted mini flowers and mini leaves 2 - once dry all elements were given a covering of rock candy distress stickles…bling was added to the middles of the flowers...

Using another couple of circles I made these:-

This time I adhered christmas paper to the base and then sanded back, the trees are from the grab bag of wonky trees and were painted with green acrylic paint, a die cut, bling and ribbon was added to complete the pieces.

Here they are together:-

Pop on over to the Tando blog and see what other bling projects have been created this week.

Paperartsy - Masterboard part 2

So, whilst inspired with the paints, stencils and pens I decided to make another masterboard, for the Paperartsy challenge, but this time  with a different colour scheme.  (Also spurred on by the fact I needed to make some christmas cards!! lol)

So, this time I tried the colour base suggested by Leandra in her video….

and as previously there was a lot of paint left:-

one of the cards made:-

the tree is from Lin Browns Christmas stamps from last year… the corner stamp is from a JFY set.

Paperartsy masterboards part 1

Hi, its ages since I took part in the fortnightly challenges over on the Paperartsy blog, but, since I love making masterboards, it was just the boost I needed to get my act in order…

I really liked Leandra's bright masterboard, so using the same colour palette I made this:-

I always have loads of paint left however careful I am pouring it out, so I also made these:-

I did add some more doodling to these:-

The masterboard was then cut up into sections and one was used to make this:-

The baubles are from Tando creative and were painted with paperarsty fresco paints and doodled.

I also added some smaller elements to make a matching tag, here they are together:-
