September colour theme over at Tando......

Hi folks,

I have been sooooooooo looking forward to this months colour theme......


and decided to go large ish.............


........and had a play with the gorgeous Noteholder/Pen Pot set........






I started by assembling everything as per the very clear instructions provided with the kit, the edging pieces were not attached at this point as I wanted to paint them in different colours to the pieces they would be attached to.  I chose to glue the 2 base units together to create one large unit but you could keep them separate if you wished.  A base coat of Decoart gesso was added to all elements once the glue was completely dry. 2 coats of acrylic were applied and then some stenciling was done on the outer base and drawer fronts using the Diamond Circle mask.

I built up 2 handles for the drawers using inchies, small circles from the centre of the round grid and hearts from the heart grab bag.  Each handle consisting of 1 inchie, 2 small circles and 1 heart.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! I couldn't cope with the thought of ditching the waste pieces from the kit so I had a play with them and came up with some washi tape holders............



Decorated to match the original make using mini flowers, a heart from the grab bag (as before), the dotted star maskthe sunburst mask, and the hearts background mask.

I really could have gone to town with the right hand one, which I think looks like a bed! I could see lace, sparkle and bedding - maybe a pin-cushion of sorts - let your imagination run riot too!!

If you fancy playing along with any of our monthly themes please feel free to share your makes using the linky tool at the top of the page. You could be in with a chance of winning some fab Tando goodies as any makes linked will be entered in a monthly prize draw.

Many thanks for popping by today,

Hugs
