Curly Tree!

Hello!  I am kick-starting another 'Anything Goes' week over at Tando Creative.  These week are where we have free rein to add all those projects that don't fit into any other category :p  Today I have a 6x6 canvas for you...
I have used one of the delightful * curly trees* that come in a pack of two along with the  *hearts background mask* .   I spread *crackle paste* through areas of the mask onto the blank canvas.  When it was dry I added some *DecoArt paint (Cobalt Teal Hue, Primary Magenta & Hansa Yellow Light)* using a sponge.  The tree was coloured with the Primary Magenta and then coated with *crackle glaze*.  I added some teensy heart buttons from my stash.  The sentiments have been stamped onto tissue paper and attached with *matt medium*. 
Thank you for taking a look today, Hugs xxx

Crazy Friends!

Helloooo!  A few weeks ago I showed you a project using Tando Cubbeys.  Here is another one that I have done for The Craft Barn blog :D

This time I have added some PaperArtsy Zinski's (no2) to the little boxes.  They are so much fun.

For more info on how I put this together please visit the blog HERE.

Thank you for popping by today xxxxx

Song Title Challenge - March

Hi!  I am back with this month Song Title Challenge and this time its the fabulous (well I like it :p) 'Blowin' in the Wind' by Bob Dylan.  If you know the lyrics you will know that there are lots of questions involved!!!!  But in the end I went for a dandelion clock stamp which, for me, summed up the answers.

The background has been made by spreading paints with an old credit card.  I then stamped the image onto tissue paper and coloured the back before attaching it to the coaster.

Fun with Cubbeys!

Hello!  I am excited to show you Tando's new CUBBEYS!!!!  These are a range of little shadow boxes with or without apertures.  There are different sets to get and they all fit together!!!  I had  a lot of fun with these!  I used Starter Kit 1 and then a small add-on pack.
Because I wasn't going to heavily decorate the back panels I glued them together before painting.  When dry I glued the boxes together as seen.  Then I decorated some card to cover 3 of the apertures once I had planned what was going where.
To fill the boxes I chose to make some things which represent my love of crafting :D ...
...a little book for journaling , some wonky patchwork for my sewing, knitting, a teensy mixed media panel, a Tando *house* of course and some pencils for my love of drawing! I found a lovely quote from Albert Einstein to add which sort of sums it all up don't you think?
There are so many things that you can do with these *Cubbeys*.  What will you do?
Till next time, take care, xxx

Banner no3

Its 'colour theme' week again over at Tando Creative and they are lovely Spring-like colours!  Continuing with my *scalloped banner*  I have added a *bird* and some little *flowers* and did the background in the lovely bright yellow of the choice.

After painting the base in the bright yellow I dabbed some blue through the pretty *fern mask*.  When that was dry I mixed some green into some *modelling paste* and applied that through the same mask.  The little flowers, bird and branch have been painted to match the other colours in the theme.  Like the others I have done, I added a tassel.
Thank you for coming to see us, do pop back, Hugs, Karen x
