Anything Goes: Mail Art

Hi Tando fans! Dana here today sharing some pretty packaging for the Anything Goes theme this week. I finished up a special project for a friend and was packing up her gift when I was struck by the plainness of the boring brown box. I thought it would be fun to make the outside of the box as colorful as the present inside.

I wrapped the box with brown paper and then brushed on a light coat of gesso. I then spritzed the paper with Dylusions mist. I used the Giovanna Doily, Giovanna Hearts and Giovanna Spiral stencils to trace these gorgeous patterns onto the box.

Once the box was covered with patterns, I colored the designs in with a black Sharpie.

You can find the entire range of Giovanna's stencils in the New Releases section of the Tando Creative Retail Store. We'd love to have you join the Anything Goes Challenge! To be in with a chance of winning some great Tando goodies of your choice, please make a piece based on our weekly themes and link your project, not just your blog, using the inlinkz tool located at the top of the Tando Blog. You don't have to use any Tando product, but, if you do, you will be entered into the draw twice! There are no limits to how many times you enter, however, we do request that you only enter your piece for 5 challenges. We look forward to seeing your creations!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Ten I made the focal image with Giovanna's Profile mask  just the same way.
Both mask are just perfect for canvases and can be used with a lot of different mediums.

Quickie Birthday Card by Kaz

 I've made a card (of course) for our Anything Goes week:

I've used my ~{Bullseye Mask}~ and lightly sprayed ink through it, then painted some of
 the circles from the ~{Grid Round}~ with acrylic paint. I then added some white paint pen dots and finished off with a watercoloured image.

Helloooo!  Today I am showing you a journal page .   Its been a while since I did any journaling myself and I do miss it!  But its the New Year so it warrants getting my book out :-D  I don't bother with New Years Resolutions any more as I am totally useless at keeping them hahaha!  So I found this quote...

You will need to enlarge it to see it, sorry!  It reads...

'My goal for 2015 it to accomplish the goals of 2014, which I should have done in 2013 because I made a promise in 2012 which I planned on keeping in 2011'

Now...if you can follow that you must be pretty clever hahaha!  To make the pages I dry brushed some beige acrylic quickly over the page and then added Texture Paste through the BIRD & BRANCH MASK.  When that was dry I replaced the mask and coloured in with Promarkers.  I doodled around the edges and used the HAVE YOUR SAY MASK to make the 2015.  The other dates are stamped.  The masks I used...

If you fancy working having a play then why not enter our challenge?  We are running a challenge through the month where you can join us with each weeks themes and be put into a draw to win fabulous prizes.  You can link your work *here*.

Thank you for looking today, HUGS, KAREN  x
