well back in february we were asked to work together with Tando supplies, as part of the Decoart design team, to send samples off for tando to display at trade shows and such.
I selected this lovely folder to alter. there are more pages to it but I only had time to do a few before sending it off to Di.
Page 1 leaves and flourishes also Tando parts.
lots of yummy DecoArt supplies used here. Texture, paint, metallic lustres, crackle, stencils etc etc.
And by the skin of my teath I have made blogged it in time for the June challenge on "Our Creative Corner" as their sponsor is "Tando" and my Decoart supplies make me VERY happy making it fit well with the June theme.

I made a diorama for Calico Craft Parts 3 or 4 weeks ago. I am now sharing it over here. It's pretty much 100% craft parts apart from the box which came free with 4 pairs of socks inside at Christmas.
I used some decorative flourishes for waves and simply started to layer the different parts on to each other to build up a 3D scene.

It's my turn over on the "Calico Craft Parts" design team blog. I altered one of those beautiful little trinket boxes. (prefect size for a collection of ATC's, pack of playing cards, gypsy witch cards etc. but also a perfect size for my favourite hand made lavender soaps. please pop over and have a look (maybe leave a comment pretty please) click HERE

I chose to use a couple of the themes. "Texture and stencils" and "Birds of a Feather".
and I used them on a 12 x 12 piece of corrugated card.
the texture is from DecoArt modelling paste and it is also a DecoArt stencil. lots of Decoart paint and mediums including the FANTASTIC crackle paint that just does as it says it will. and my usual splashes of "Quinacridone Gold" for rusty blobs.
as I had used a variety of DecoArt mediums I had some patches that had a Shin on the surface, some matt and some in between. i wanted consistency so I gave it all a coat of DecoArt Ultra matt medium. That takes away all shine and reflections (easier to get photos too when you have to use a flash).
I'm making a basic frame out of driftwood and jute string for this but its not ready yet.
