Mixed Media Boards with Tando

Hi folks and welcome to this weeks post for Tando Creative. This week the theme was mixed media boards.

Tando Mixed Media Boards are fabulous small boards which can take loads of layers of different products. They are fabulous for having a play with and trying new techniques with. 

I used three of the 74mm x 138mm mixed media boards for this project.

Here is what I did...

First, I gave the boards with a coat of DecoArt white gesso then painted them with DecoArt Media Acrylic Paints

I then used the Tando 4 x 4 clock mini mask with DecoArt white modelling paste on the background.  

I added DecoArt Crackle Paint randomly over areas of the boards to add some texture.

I used the Tando 6 x 6 sequin waste stencil with the DecoArt paints. I added more layers using Carabelle Studio Chevron stamp and Carabelle Studio Mini Textured Checkerboard stamp. 

I used Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel in Shabby Green on Tando holly flourish. I also used the Frantage on some paper flowers and added some white natural raffia. I also recycled some onion netting packaging which I painted to make it darker and added some glue to some areas and adhered microbeads.

I used a selection of stamps from Vive LA Stamps 'Everything Stops For Tea', 'Never Stop Looking Up' and 'Time On My Hands' which I stamped on to acetate with black Stazon Ink. I cut the acetate wider than the mixed media boards and adhered each side of the acetate to the back of the board to create a bubble over the front of each board. 

I really like this project of mixed media boards. They are so versatile to use and just the right size to create fabulous mini projects.

Thanks for popping by today. Please leave a comment, I love to hear what you think.
Toodles for now, Lisa

Antiquing over @ Tando

Hi folks and welcome to this weeks Tando Creative post. This week's theme is "Antiquing".

I used on of the Tando mixed media long tags and a couple of the Tando 4 x 4 mini masks for this creation. 

Here is my creation...

First, I painted the tag with DecoArt white Gesso. When it was dry I used the 'fragile' mask with DecoArt white modelling paste across the centre of the tag and used the 'clock' mask again with the white modelling paste on the top and bottom of the tag.

I then added some DecoArt texture sand paste in random areas and round the edges of the tag. And used the DecoArt crackle paint over the top of the 'fragile' area of the tag.

I painted the tag using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics

I added some DecoArt black Antiquing Creme to emphasis the cracks made with the crackle paint on the 'fragile' part of the tag.

I used Technique Tuesday scritch scratch stamp and black VersaFine ink to add some texture around the outside of the tag.

To finish, I used some netting, which I painted and added to the top of the tag. 

Thanks for popping by, leave a comment if you wish, I love to hear your thoughts.
