Hi folks and welcome to my blog post for Tando. This week the theme is 'masks and stencils'.Like every mixed media artist, I have a thing about stencils. Tando have a mega selection of stencils, of all themes and sizes. I chose a huge selection for this project.
Here is my creation...
I used the Kate Crane divided box (Ministry of Mixology kit - April 2017) Tando kit. I have had this a while but didn't know what I wanted to store in there... Until.... Enter the Tando Tags Mega Bundle!!!!
I love creating using the Tando Tags. Any size. And I always find myself searching for them. But now I don't have to!!!
I first laid out all the pieces of the kit down flat and gave them a coat of white gesso on both sides.
I then raided my selection of Tando Stencils. I love stencils. How you can use the whole image, a corner or just the middle part to create a different look.
I basically had no method to creating this box. I just went with it. I used a selection of colours from the DecoArt Premium paint range and continually added layers and layers colour with a different stencil until I was happy.
I drew over some of the stencilled shapes with black and white Posca pens.
I wrote out a label on a piece of white card and added some ink to distress it. Then attached it to the box using brads.
I hope you like my version of the Kate Crane divided box.
If you would like to leave me a comment please do so, I love to hear your thoughts.
