Summer week over at Tando Creative........

Hi Folks,

I was lucky enough to grow up in the coastal town of Looe in Cornwall and the majority of my school summer holidays were spent on local beaches! Happy memories of my Mum sunbathing while I played and swam to my hearts content. The fab picnics she used to make were always a bonus too!

Anyways, I chose to have a play with a mixed media board to see if I could epitomise my summers..........

Blue skies, golden sand, ice-creams and seagulls do it for me! I lost many an ice-cream to a greedy opportunist seagull too!!

Here is what I used along with some summer themed stamps from my stash.....

Mixed Media Boards 74mm x 138mm

Tando Minis - Ice Creams

Mini Mask - Distressed Sequins

Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to. Your time and thoughts mean an awful lot.

Fridge Magnet

Hi all,

here is my make for this weeks Layers challenge over on the Tando blog.............

Lol sorry for the wonky pic, typical of me in general really!!!!!!

I started with one of the 74mm-138mm mixed media boards and put a layer of modelling paste through the Cogs Group Mask.
Once the paste was dry I added a thin layer of Decoart Gesso followed by a layer of Cobalt Teal Decoart Media fluid acrylic.
I replaced the mask and stippled a mixture of other fluid acrylics through in patches until I was happy with the result.

Elements from the Steampunk Wings and Cogs set and the Cogs Grab Bag were painted, again in Decoart fluid acrylic, and attached as shown. The word was added as I felt it needed one lol!

I have attached a magnetic strip to the back of the board and this is now brightening up my fridge as a fridge magnet.

Many thanks for popping by today, your time is much appreciated.

Carrier Storage Unit

Hi all,

I wanted to share my take on the amazing carrier storage unit as posted over on the Tando Creative blog today. This is one incredibly sturdy and supremely useful piece of kit, and all the better is the pleasure of decorating it to suit your own style/decor...........

Hee hee can you tell I had a lot of fun playing with paint and stencils while doing this one. I got as close to the colour theme as I could with what I had in my stash too!!!!

Here is what I used.....
