Fish Fingers - Karen Gist



Hi everyone,

Welcome to a new week here on the blog!

A little bit of trivia for you......

What have we been buying for the last 60 
years to feed our families????
You'll never guess.....

Fish Fingers

Yes, it is 60 years since Birdseye started
selling us Fish Fingers!
(Thank you for that Dawn)
I'd never have known that.....so to honour 
our amazing fishermen who go out into the
seas everyday in all weathers, we are having 
a wet week here on the blog!

Today we have Karen Gist with her 
Tando Creative Boat Hanging - 



1.  Cover all the pieces with a light coat of
 Gesso. When dry paint the main part of the 
boat and the fish Turquoise.  Paint the flag 
and circles red and the boat planks and
 the whale in Burnt Sienna mixed with 
a little white to lighten it a little.

2.  Over stamp the boards and the whale using
 Stazon Spiced Chai and a wood effect 
background stamp.  On the fish, dab red
 through the Tando Sequin Waste Mask.  
When dry add doodling to the circles.  
Dab White paint randomly & gently through
 the Tim Holtz Bubble mask on the planks,
 the whale & the flag.


3. Glue the elements to the main section of the
 boat.  Add tiny buttons as shown then thread 
up with string.


Karen says she was so engrossed in her
work that she forgot to take more photos!
I think we will forgive her.

If you fancy making one, this is what 
you'll need -

 Burnt Sienna, Cadmium Red, Cobalt Turquoise

Ok, that's me done for today,
I'll be back tomorrow.
