GD for The Craft Barn!

Hi!  A bit excited here as I can, at last, begin to show you what I have been doing the last few weeks :-D  I was asked to be a guest designer for June for ~THE CRAFT BARN~  using TANDO CREATIVE PRODUCTS!!!!!  I also felt very humbled as they have some incredible artists on their team!  I shall be appearing once a week for this month only and my 1st post is today.  The prompt was to use masks so I used Tando's clock mask to make a.......clock hahahahaha!!!!!


I used a chunky canvas for my base and then lightly coated it with watered down Eco Green Acrylic paint in Periwinkle & Lake. A flourish was stamped randomly over the top before I coated it with multi-medium. Using some of the Lake colour I sponged through the Tando Creative Hearts Background mask in the centre of the canvas and drew around the hearts with a white pen. Using dimensional paste mixed with EcoGreen Grape and using an old credit card I stencilled the Tando Creative Clock in the centre. I also added some hearts to the corners.
I added elements from the Tando Creative 'Home Sweet Home Plaque trio' to decorate. The clock hands have been coloured using a Krylon silver pen and crackle accents added to the clock numerals, rooves and hearts.
