Free for all with Irit for August

Hello my dear crafty friends! 
Irit is here again and this is my Free for all project.
This is a wooden piece made into this trendy Chalkboard deco with stamping and heat embossed letters, but then I made those gorgeous Tando  clusters on both corners of this project.

Here you can see the lower corner.

And here is the upper one. Both were made with leaves, flowers and birds covered with a few layers of White thick embossing powder and then some of the pieces were stamped into the hot powder for the texture. On the bottom I used Tando new Long Flourish  mask with white texture powder.

I really love this black and  white projects made with  Tando delicious chippies and masks. Most sure will do  more of those classic projects in the future.
And here are the products used for this project

Free For All - Bracelet

Hi!  Its Caroline here with my project for this weeks Free For All theme.

To make this bracelet I used some Tando Creative Leaves as a template.  I drew around them onto shrink plastic!

Leaf Branch with Loose Leaves currently on sale!

I then used a stamp to create the dotted design, punched a hole, and then heated.

They then end up x7 times smaller than before and ideal for jewellery use!

Before and After!

I had such fun with this.  Shrink plastic is one of those things I forget to use but when I do its just wonderful how the shape changes and quite delightful to use.  I am easily pleased. :)

Free For All Frame Card

It's another Anything Goes week this week and I am starting it off with this card:

I've cut one of the ~{Lace Effect Borders}~ into 4 pieces to make a frame. It's been painted with acrylic paints and then doodled around. You could, if you were accurate, cut angles on the edges to make it fit, but I don't trust myself so I added flowers in the corners to hide the gaps! Besides, it fitted the image perfectly - and that's what I shall continue to say ;)

Keep checking for the rest of the week to see what goodies the team have for you.

Scrapbooking Pretty in Pink

Hello, its Karen here today with something 'Pretty in Pink'.  I have made a very simple scrapbook page using a gorgeous photo of my gorgeous niece, Millie.

For the background I used Andy Skinners mask - SUNBURST and Fresco paint.  It looked a bit stark so I put the mask back and added dabs of white over the top.  The BLOCK FLOURISH is a favourite of mine and is reduced at the moment!  You get 2 in a pack!!!!  I have decorated it in the same way as the background.  Both of these are available on our new RETAIL SITE.  Some lace and wording finish the page off.

Thank you for popping by and do keep visiting for more inspiration, Take Care, Karen x

Pretty in Pink - Wooden Heart

Hi there!
I don't know if anyone knows this but I do love Pink!
Saying that though, this wooden heart isn't massively pink but there is a hint of pink underneath the white!

This home decor item started off as plain wooden hearts.  I painted each heart pink with chalk paint, then painted over the pink with white chalk paint.  I then rubbed the hearts with sandpaper to take some of the white paint off so you can see some of the pink underneath.
Cogs Group mask
I then used the Tando Creative Cogs Group mask on the hearts with Viva Decor Ferro Iron paste and left to dry for a while.  This created a nice raised effect as the application was quite thick.
