Some news....

Hello folks and welcome to today's blog post.

This will be a short one as I just want to share some news.

The lovely Jennie Boxall from The Artistic Stamper has offered me a position on the Creative Team.

I am super thrilled to be joining the rest of the team and excited to be working with a fabulous collection of stamps and masks. 

Stay tuned for my 1st creation....

Anything Goes @ Tando

Hi folks and welcome to my blog post. This week over at Tando is an 'Anything Goes' week.

With it being nearly Christmas.... And you can never have enough Christmas Trees can you??? So....

Here is my creation...

I first painted all the pieces with white Gesso. Then mixed a bluey green colour using DecoArt Fluid Acrylics - Cobalt Turquoise Hue, Phthaol Green-Blue and Primary Cyan

When the first layer of paint was dry, I dry brushed the tree with DecoArt Primary Cyan Media Fluid Acrylic.

I then randomly stamped areas of the tree with Broken China Distress Oxide ink and one of the stamps from the Mini Backgrounds #1 stamp set from The Artistic Stamper.

I took a selection of Tando Mini's including parcels and bows, ice skates, candles, brush stroke trees and snowflakes
I applied clear embossing ink on the front and back of each mini and heat embossed with Stampendous Shabby Green Embossing Enamel
I did the same with the star on top of the tree. 

When the enamel had cooled, I adhered the mini's to the tree. 

I then put all the pieces together to make the tree stand. To finish, I added some battery powered lights to the centre of the tree. 

Thanks for popping by my blog today. 
Leave a comment if you wish as I love to hear your thoughts.
Toodles for now,
