Tando July Colour Theme

This is the colour theme for this month on the Tando Blog:

I've made another Twinchie

I've painted the base of the twinchie with acrylic paint and then dabbed paint through the leaf part of one of the 3 part Vine layering stencils.

I then painted 3 of the Mini Flowers and one of the Mini Leaves 2 with acrylic paints. 

I've then stamped a text stamp and doodles to finish everything off.

Tando June Colour Theme

This is the colour theme for June on the Tando Blog:

I've made another Twinchie:

I've used the semi circle from the Industrial Pack

I painted the base and then the semi circle with acrylic paints. I've used the Dots Stencil onto the base and a text stamp.

I've given everything some doodles and then finished off with a stamped bird and a quote.

Tando - Arches

The theme this week on the Tando Blog is arches:

I applied Modelling Paste through one of the Flourish Layering Stencils and when that was dry, everything had a coat of Everlasting Chalk Paint.

When that was dry I applied some Brusho powders in Turquoise  and Lime individually and sprayed them with water, letting them flow around the stencilled parts. 

I added some spray inked splatters and doodled the edges, finishing off with a stamped image and a quote.

Tando Accordian Book

I've made a concertina mini book from the Mega Pack for this week's Anything Goes on the Tando Blog:

I decorated the cover very simply with white acrylic paint and added a stamped image - it's been an age since I used my Stampotique stamps - that was stamped onto a gessoed book page. I added a doodled border and coloured everything with watercolours.

The pages of the mini book have been made attaching gelli prints together end to end and folding them concertina style. The first and last folds have been glued to the mini book pages. The back page has a piece of ribbon stuck behind it to keep the book closed when not used.

I then gessoed some book pages and sheet music and stuck them together end to end to the same size as the gelli prints. I then smooshed them into some watery ink.

They were then stuck back to back so I have double sides to use.

I've started to fill the pages with collage and doodles.

May Colour Theme for Tando

This is the gorgeous colour theme for this month on the Tando Blog:

I've continued with the Twinchie theme:

I started off by painting the twinchie from dark to light with acrylic paints, then took a semi-circular piece from the Organic Twinchie  pack and painting it with acrylic paint.

Once everything was dry, I doodled just about everything and finished off with a stamped image and a quote.

I hope you are staying safe x.

April Colour Theme for Tando

This month's colour theme for the Tando Blog is this:

I'm continuing with the Twinchies:

I gave the Twinchie a coat of White Gesso and then stamped a text stamp onto it. I then used spray inks by adding drops from the spray and adding water until I got a blend I liked.

I then painted a piece from the Twinchie Industrial set with acrylic paint and added some embossing powder to it. I then added more drops of spray ink and layers of embossing powder until I was happy with the look.

I finished off with a stamped image, some doodling and a couple of words.

Tando - Stencils

This week on the Tando Blog we are using stencils:

I've used a gel print as a background and used an older stencil on that (yet again I've used one not in the store!). I tore the edges and stuck it onto the black card that comes in the packaging.

I then used the Rings Stencil on the card base adding more rings to increase the height.

I've added a stamped image, some washiest tape and a stamped greeting.
