Mixology kit

Hi, another Monday, where is time going?

This week over on the Tando blog we are showcasing the Mixology kits…what is Mixology? Mixology is a retreat run by Tando along with DecoArt and stampendous - it is held twice a year and there are specific projects each time using Tando kits, each one designed for the weekend.

Today I'm using the fabulous journal taught by Kate Crane at the April 2016 class…

Here is my front cover…

The base has been painted with DecoArt fluid acrylic paints in a Kate Crane style and doodling to match…. using the sequin waste mask some stencilling was added using paints.  

More pages will follow in the following months as I intend to use this on my travels later on in the year.

August colour theme….

Hi, can you believe that its August already, one clear soul on Facebook recently put up how many Fridays til Christmas!! ummm say no more!!

As its the first Monday of the month its a new colour theme over on the Tando blog.  So, that means another ATC from me, I'm getting a lovely selection of ATC's now and really enjoy working on the smaller size again… its nice to step back sometimes isn't it…

Here is the colour theme for August….

vibrant this month isn't it..

so, here is my August ATC:-

The base is a tando ATC which was given a coat of gesso, once dry I then added some DecoArt fluid acrylic paint… using the same colours I stencilled the brick and distressed sequin mini masks.  I then added some stamping in black paint using Nathalie Kalbach Marks stamp set - these then had some white pen doodled on it… the butterfly was painted and then some Stampendous spoonful in pixie dust was added…black paint was added to the edges…


Did you see Kate Crane on Hochanda using the Tando substrates and the DecoArt fluid acrylics? I managed to see all of the shows and was so inspired that whilst the paints were out I also made:-
