Autumn Leaves @ Tando

Hi Folks and welcome to this weeks Tando post. The theme this week is Autumn Leaves.

I must admit, I'm a huge fan of Autumn. The beautiful colours, animated sounds and textures that Autumn brings.... 

With that in mind, I wanted to incorporate all these in to this weeks theme. 

Here is my creation...

I first glued all the pieces of the mini heart printer tray together. Then cut some of the frame to make the areas larger. I then added a layer of DecoArt texture sand paste to the background piece.
I painted the inside background with DecoArt Media fluid acrylic paints.

I then applied a layer of DecoArt Media crackle paint to the outside frame.
I gather all the leaves from the Tando products and started to layer. 
I love how Tando products can be used individually or can be layered to create an extreme 3D piece.

So, I arranged and re-arranged the leaves until I was happy with the layout. Then adhered them to the frame.

I then added some more texture sand paste to some of the leaves. I also added some lace, hessian and threads to some of the leaves to create more height and texture.

I mixed a palette of autumn colours with DecoArt Media fluid acrylics and painted the leaves.

To finish, I added some micro beads to create more texture. 

All of the products I have used are listed below and are available on the Tando Website.
