Tando Challenge - July

Hi!  Every month there is a new Challenge over at Tando Creative.  One of the lovely things about this challenge is that its so easy to take part in.  You don't have to use Tando products for it but if you do you are entered twice in the draw to win a bunch of Tando goodies that you choose yourself!!!!  You can choose some chipboard or our lovely masks or both. The theme this month is...

FAVOURITE ARTIST!

We reserve Wednesdays on our blog to show you DT pieces to inspire you and I am 1st up with a Tando bowl that I have decorated.  This bowl comes flat but its really easy to put together and is really sturdy so you can use it as you like!   As its a bowl I have looked to the wonderful Clarice Cliffe for inspiration.


I glued the pieces together before I lightly drew the design in pencil.  Then it was acrylics all the way before a fine liner black pen drawn around the shapes.  I have covered it with 3 layers of matt varnish so that it is wipeable too.  Here is the Clarice life bowl that inspired me...


and here is the gorgeous oval bowl naked...its 29cm x 20cm...





So...go on have a go at this challenge, you know you want to!!!!

Thank you for popping by, I really appreciate it, HUGS xxx
