Spooky @ Tando

Hi folks and welcome to Spooky week at Tando. Halloween is just around the corner and of course, we have to take the opportunity to create something spooky and ghoulish.

Here is my creation...

I used the Tando Round 3D box kit for my spooky inspired creation. I though of creating a basket to put Halloween treats in for the visitors. 

I first used the Tando stitches group mask and Andy Skinner's snake web mask with DecoArt white modeling paste and alternated the stencils while alternating pieces of the round 3D box. 

I then put the round 3D box together, which was a bit tricky, but once a couple of the pieces were in, it was easy peasy to construct.

I added the Halloween words, Tando Minis skulls and pumpkins, the large cobweb and the spiders. I added DecoArt texture sand paste to the spiders and the Halloween words, then painted the whole thing with DecoArt black gesso.

I chose DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic paints Cadmium Orange Hue, Blue Green Light and Green Gold to paint the box.
I continued to add the paint in sections until I was happy with the colours. 

To finish, I dry brushed areas with DecoArt white gesso.

Thanks for popping by.
Toodles for now...

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.
