'Gee Up' or whatever you say to a horse!!!!

Hi there,  I have had fun decorating a HORSE!  This one is free standing (from Tando Creative) at around 6inches high and is made from sturdy MDF.
I wanted to try out the DecoArt Media Misters and was not disappointed with the colours...really vibrant!  I started by giving the horse & stand a cover of Gesso before spraying through a few of Tando's Masks/stencils.  I added some Bakers Twine for the mane & tail plus a quote which looks wonky (sorry).  The stand has been covered with DecoArt Crackle Paste which was coloured with some fluid acrylics.  The quote reads: 'Horses lend us the wings we lack'...I like that even though I am scared of riding haha !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is what I used:
Tando Horse
Tando Masks:
Giovanna's Doilie 8inch 
Random Circles Mask 
Andy Skinner's Sunburst 
Media Misters
Crackle Paste
Media Fluid Acrylics
If you love horses why not get the Horse and Carriage?  Imagine it with all the tackle added :-D
If you would like to join in with us and enter your makes into a monthly draw then please take a look at the Link Page at the top of the Tando blog.
Thank you so much for taking a look today, Hugs xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
