A little bit of excitement today cos I can now share with you that I have been invited to join the Tando Creative Design Team.... whooohoooo with a cherry on top :D That means lots of lovely lovely chippie will be coming my way to play with. I want to say a HUGE thank you to Di for the opportunity and I hope you will pop over to the Tando blog to join in with the gorgeous things that I and the other DT members will be sharing there.
I couldn't abandon my painting just yet... oh you just know that I can't...lol... so I was uber excited when I realised that the Tando Chipboard is sturdy enough to take whatever I throw at it... and as it also has a gorgeous white coating it's ideal for painting on. Yeeeeeessss!! So for my first pieces for the DT I decided to create some heart jewellery. I think Frida Kahlo is a wonderful artist and my brooch above is in honour of her.
I then decided to paint a little whimsy girl and turned the painting into a necklace before finally doing a mixed media brooch (below) too. Lotsa fun... I enjoyed every moment.
This one was created by throwing bits of kitchen roll at it... ok ..ok I didn't throw them... I rolled them and collaged them and added swirls of fabric coated wire... but you know what I mean ;-)
The colouring is watercolour crayons and acrylic paint mixed.
Now for the best bit... I made these from the Tando Home hanger and I still have another heart and the words left to play with... heh heh.. I'm nothing if not frugal with my goodies!!
I will share what I make with what's left soon. TFL
