Technique Binder - by Hannah Oxberry

Beginning next week the Tando Team are hosting 24 weeks of Play Day Inspirations, I am so excited to be involved and kicking things off  with a Facebook Live on Thursday 28th February at 19.00 GMT over on the Tando Creative Zone - I hope you can join me!

Here's a closer look at the tag Binder I have created ready for my inspiration tags.

Rather than conceal the greyboard, I decided to make it a feature. I have brayered over the binder in layers of grey chalky finish paints to build a textured effect. I also added a brayered layer of white as a contrast. More texture was added by way of crackle paste, applied roughly with a palette knife.

I chose to used the wording "techniques" down one side of the binder, the letters have been painted black and crackled with glaze. And I have finished the binder with circle stamps in jet blank ink.

The inside of the binder I kept simple, painted in a satin black. I have begun painting my tags with my favourite techniques and can use this as the perfect reference tool.

I hope you have enjoyed the project and I look forward to seeing you for the Play Day Inspirtions soon!
