Faux Wood for Tando Creative

I have a post over at Tando Creative today where I have shown my weathered floorboards technique which you can see over there and here.

I definitely seem to be in pink mode at the moment as here's another shabby grugy project in a vintage rose colour.

When I began this project it was snowing outside and I chose the elements I wanted to use which included that heart so I decided to find a snowy palette with a touch of red. Here it is.

But there isn't a rich dark burgundy red in my media paints range so I had some fun with colour mixing to find the colours I would need to use.
Here is my colour mixing palette and by the time I had tried these all out I just went for it in my paint palette and added cadmium red hue, sap green, paynes grey, pyrrole red, and a little black. It's a little browner than I wanted but I'm happy with it as part of the background.

It would be lovely if you could join me over there and also see what ideas the other team members show us.

I hope you've had a great weekend and hopefully the snow has gone or is going wherever you are especially in the Uk.

Enjoy your week.
