Free For All - Decorate a Cake!

I love how versatile stencils/mask are!  I baked a chocolate cake for my son before he headed back to Uni this week, and I knew one of the Tando Creative masks would be an ideal way to decorate the cake.

I used the Andy Skinner-Sunburst mask on this cake, although any of the masks would leave a fab design!  All you do is wait for the cake to cool completely, and then place the mask on top of the cake and sprinkle on some icing sugar.  Remove the mask and you are left with the design.  Love it!

If you like the look of this Devil's Food Chocolate Cake then pop on over to my blog where I have posted the recipe.  It really is delish!

Free for all with Irit: Travel Memories journal

It's still very hot summer here in Israel, but the smell of fall is all over the world. So I made this Travel Memories Journal cover(and the journal too, but empty yet) with all fall colors with  some Tando new chipboards and a very new delicious mask.

I Used Memories title as a part of my journal title; covered it with paint and crackle clear medium  to get this vintage look.

And some close- ups too

The round frame was covered with a mix of inks to get this dark colour, then heat embossed with a bit of clear embossing ink and then covered with clear crackle paint.
The masked letters from Letters mask were made with texture paste and totally randomly over the paper and just a part of them are seen.

All delicious products are in Tando shop! You are welcome to get some and to make your fall projects.
Products used here:
Mask - Letters

Frames - Large Oval

Fall Mixed Media Board

Hi Tando fans! Dana here today sharing a fall themed Mixed Media Board for the Free For All theme this week. Fall is my favorite season and I'm looking forward to watching the leaves change color, baking delicious apple and pumpkin flavored treats and spending time at the local orchards.

I primed this 80mm x 116mm Mixed Media Board with gesso and then added color with Gelatos. I then stamped and embossed leaves. I finished this board with a small flower cluster, a piece from the Leaf branch with 3 Loose Leaves and layered sticker sentiment

Thanks for stopping by today! You can pick up the chipboard I used for this project from the Tando Creative Retail Shop.

Free For All Necklace.

For this week's Free For All I knew I wanted to use part of the ~{Leaf and Swirl Pendant Design}~ I just didn't know how or what colours!

I had a good rummage through my beads and found this crackle, foiled glass disc and went from there.

I first went with the Paperartsy Crackle paint, but the crackles were too tiny so I gave the pendant another coat of Bora Bora paint and when this was dry, used PVA glue and black paint. This gave the effect I wanted. The best thing about Tando chipboard is that it coped perfectly with me smoothering it with loads of products! No warping or splitting at all.

Once that was dried I applied Glossy Accents all over including the sides - this had to be done in stages, but it's worth the effort as it gives it a lovely finish.

Here's a close-up of the crackle:

I've connected everything with gunmetal coloured findings and black waxed cord.

Fall Tag

Hi Tando fans! Dana here today sharing a Fall themed tag. I used Distress Ink with the Tree and Leaves 3-part Mask to build a Fall scene. I added a piece of Flexistrip Grass and some Mini Leaves, that I colored with acrylic paint, over the design. I finished the tag by adding some glitter flourishes with the Long Flourish Mask to represent a cool breeze.
