Tando - Printer Trays - Dawn Heald


Welcome to the weekend!

Wonder what you all have planned??

Here we are again today with Tando Printer Trays
and Dawn has made a stunning project for you!

Dawn says ....

I wanted to create something soft, pretty and a little bit shabby
 chic with light colours ready for summer.

Here's how to make this project -
Glue the layers of the tray together and make some embellishments
 from clay and the Martha Stewart molds. The rose is made by
 squashing some small balls of clay between my fingers and adding
 them around a very small cone of clay as the middle.

Gather some Tando Minis and then give everything a couple coats
 of white Gesso. Punch out three butterflies from pink
 painted card scrap.

Paint the tray, back piece, stand and three focal elements with
 Lake Wanaka.
When dry, apply Crackle Glaze to the tray and backing piece
 and whilst drying (or speed up with heat tool) paint the other 
embellishments in a mix of Fresco Finish Paints.

Use Nougat mixed with a drop of Mocha Mousse to paint over 
the crackle glaze. Dry. With the clay embellishments,after 
painting the lightest colour, use a darker tone on edges.
When dry, colour parts with coordinating colours of Distress Markers. 
This really did make a difference.

For the three blue pieces, sponge with pink paint. 
Then drop tiny amounts of Aged Gold powder and heat.
Edge all blue pieces and tray with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. 
Add some Cantaloupe Liquid Pearls to centres of clay flowers and
 punched butterflies.

Using PaperArtsy stamps and gold ink, stamp all over the
 background with the large spiky flower and the frame with the
 tiny dot flowers. Set the ink with heat tool. Stamp and gold
 heat emboss the word Believe from the sentiment in the set 
onto a scrap of pink painted card and glue to the back of the Tando
 mini bookplate.

Arrange your pieces how you like them and glue down. 
Use either hot glue, Glue gel or silicone glue. Decorate with some
 flatback ivory pearls. Place Tray on stand and admire. X

What a lovely way to end the week, this is absolutely gorgeous!
