Stencil canvas

Hello, I am kicking off our Tando Creative Blog MASK/STENCIL week of fun!!!  Tando Masks, (or stencils if you prefer) are extremely sturdy yet still very flexible.  I have used mine with all sorts of mediums, from paint to very textured paste.  They clean up superbly, usually with some washing up liquid and a nailbrush but I am a bit lazy and tend to leave mine until the medium is truly dried on (so naughty) and if the nailbrush won't shift it, I spray on oven cleaner, leave for half an hour and then wash!!!!  You can also put them in the dishwasher hahaha!!!!!  We have a lot of different designs to suit all tastes and as well as our own designs we have well known designers who have designed some- Andy Skinner, Neil Walker and Giovanna Zara as well as our own lovely Kaz.

For my project I have used 3 different masks (I will list them later) and made up a large canvas.

Lots and lots of layers on this one if you look closely.  I added some stamped and watercoloured flowers (Chocolate Baroque) and a quote.  Some close ups...

I shall be writing a tutorial for this one soon which will be available of the Tando Website so do look out for it if you fancy making something similar!  These are the masks that I used:

Andy Skinners beautiful *Baroque*
Kaz Boughton's pretty *Dotted Star* 
Tando's lovely *Long Flourish* 
If you fancy having a play with some stencils/masks then please enter our monthly draw.  You can find the page to link your work to at the top of the *Tando Creative Blog*.  Lots of prizes to be won :-D
Thank you for popping by, Hugs xxx
