FLOWERHEAD FLOURISHES CANVAS!

Helloooo, its Karen here and today I am bringing you a little 4x4inch canvas using the small ~flowerhead flourishes~.  Although they are flowers I have looked at them differently as very pretty shapes :-D   All the chippie has been coloured with Mica Sprays, the browny one is actually a mauve though it doesn't show that up sadly!


The canvas was painted with acrylics & some scrap paper added.  Here they are nekkid hahaha...


Thank you for taking a looksee today, please leave a message if you pop by and don't forget to keep checking back to see what the fabulous DT make with this wonderful chipboard! HUGS X

Good day sunshine with some Tando pieces

Sometimes you just need a small item to add and your whole page is " jumping" to the next level.
On this lo  of mine those Tando Creative weather pieces from Rainbow and elements ser  were the only needed perfect touch.
So I covered the clouds with Ranger pearl glue paint and the sun with Ranger glitter glue paint and that's it!!
Hope you like this as much as I do

Bon Voyage mini tag book


This super mini acrylic tag book was  made with Clear Scraps acrylic tag album and Tando Creative small chipboards on every single  tag
All tags were embossed with Tim Holtz embossing plates, inked with alcohol inks and then embellished with paper cuts and Tando chipboards, mostly I just left the brown ones as they are, only a lamp from the town set was covered with crackle  gold paint
 I used some chipboards from Town set and one flower set was cut to 3 pieces- that's how small this mini book is

Us lo and some travel page too


 Hi! It's Irit here and I am just sorry that I was a bit MIA for a  few weeks.Actually I have a lot of new thing to show using the new and so gorgeous Tando title words, but most of my new pages were done for my Best Creations paper company DT and as the paper releases are all brand new, I can't show them  yet, but don't worry- it will come soon and big time-LOL.
So this page is  just a very new one I did today with Tando US title and I think the title is the best part here, really. I  inked it with some distress ink and then added this crackle 3D Ranger glue and waited for about 12 hours to see the crackles.. But now, as you all can see, it is there and looks great.


 And something small too:I did a mini album for BC DT and all of the items had to be from this company, but I felt that this Tando compass needs  to be on my page- so I just added it and let it be so- it fits perfectly..
You can see the overall look of this hand made mini album and the Tando page too.

Another multi frame

These frames are so popular and we have seen some stunning takes on them.  My attempt is very Tando based...as it would be LOL.  Virtually every piece of chippie used in this is a Tando product.  I have used a whole host of different paint techniques with my favourite Viva Decor products along with glitter, patterned papers, Eco Green paints, Glossy Accents and more.

Thanks for dropping by for a look.

ROUND MULTI-FRAME

Hi!  its Karen here!  Haven't there been some amazing examples of what you can do with the multi-frames?  I have been working on the round one and have tried to do something a little different with it.  I hope that the Boss doesn't mind that I discarded the stand, but I thought it would look pretty hanging up xxxx 


After covering the frame with gesso, I tried watersoluble wax crayons on it and I quite like the shabby look it gives.  Tando chippie can take all kinds of abuse & I used a fair bit of water hahaha!

All the objects in the little apertures tell something about me which I will explain more on my own blog.  Spot the teensy Tando chippie on there???  Here is what the blank looks like...


Thank you for popping by...please leave a comment to say that you have been...we love comments hahaha!!! HUGS XXX

Sophie Loves Pink



This layout is of my little Papillon Sophie wearing a little pink Bandage. I have used Echo Park Be Mine papers and alphabets and some ribbon and lace. The Tando Flower head flourish has been sprayed with Pewter Mica Mist and attached to the lace flower and the Tando Butterfly has again been sprayed with pewter and some black rhinestones added. I have also added some punched butterflies. Sophie licked the page so I guess she must like it, lol

Multi Frame




After I finished the multi frame for my daughter I decided to make one for my son and use some of the pics of his rabbits (which live at my friends house)
I used Frosty Blue and Tropical blue Mica mist to colour the frame and have used Echo Park's Little Boy papers. I used buttons as embellishments on the frame. I also added a small Tando dragonfly which was coloured with silver mica and then Opal Dust added and also 2 small Tando Mixed swirls which have been sprayed with silver Mica.
He loves it!!!!

Round Multi Frame


I have sprayed the Multi Frame with Pink Mica mist and then added some pictures of my daughter with her favourite horses.
I have used Echo Park's Be Mine papers to decorate the little frames and also the small butterflies are punched from those papers. The larger butterflies are Jenni Bowlin, I have also added some Rhinestones and a crown.
My daugter just loves this and I have also promised to make one for my wee boy.

Dove with Hearts

It has been great fun making this up this week-end. The chippie has been coloured with Viva's Inca Gold and then the birds were stamped and embossed. Just wish there was somewhere to hang it as it should be without walls 'cause this set cries out to be a mobile.

The full set also contains three seperate hearts as with so much of the Tando range a pack offers so much more than just one project.











Here is a picture of what you get
