Large Chinese Fan

Hello, its Karen here!  Once a month we are now going to have a 'Free For All' week where we can showcase anything Tando that we may have done that doesn't fit into any particular theme.  Its a brilliant way to show you what we may have done for other DT's or just for the sake of it :D

I was demonstrating at the Craft Barn Extravaganza a couple of weeks ago using the NEW RELEASES and so I shall be showcasing  them here.  First up is the LARGE FAN.  This one measures 31cm x 21cm so a decent size for some wall art.  Its layered so you can add all sorts of ephemera if you choose.  I went for the obvious Chinese theme for this haha...


I used red acrylic paint on the background and then a crackle stamp in black. 

Please note...the segments in the fan are all slightly different so use the upper section as a template if you are going to add paper/card sections as I did.

The stamp for 4 of the segments is by Lynn Perella at PaperArtsy.  This has been stamped onto red painted card them clear embossed.  The top section has been painted black and A applied.  I made a tassel and attached a Chinese coin with a brad.  Here it is naked...


As you see it comes complete with the 'waste'...I am still thinking about how to use those :D  There is also another Fan Pack containing a small and a medium fan.
