Twinchie - January

Hello everyone!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
I hope that everone had a lovely Christmas!!!  Mine was the usual mix of busy busy and PJ days hahaha.  This week is the 1st of this years colour themes over at Tando and this year I have challenged myself to use *twinchies*.  They are great value at £1.90 for 10!!!!!  It will be interesting to see how much I can get on a 2inch square hahaha!  Here is the first one...
Lots of texture here.  I used the little *distressed sequins mini mask*  and laid down some *texture paste*.  When it was dry I added acrylic paint till I was happy before adding a layer of *crackle glaze*.  The little *star* has been painted to match. The colour theme:

Song Title Challenge - November

Hellooooo!  The song title for this months Craft Barn challenge is:

"Paint it Black" by The Rolling Stones

As much as I love the early Stones music I still had to take a look at the lyrics and listen to it (several times haha)  My first thought was to add a door to the coaster but then I thought about what colours the girls would have been wearing so went with that!

The song is quite 'dark' when you really listen to it.  So I added thick drips of black paint over the prettiness.

Down in the dark woods.....

Hellooooo!  Today I have a Tando SHRINE that I have decorated.  It looks a little gloomy inside which is what I wanted to achieve.  A sort of 'deep down in the dark woods' feel :-D

There are deer down in the woods with the rabbits and the owls!!!

Thank you for stopping by, take care xxx
