Tando Stencil Binder

It's 'Crackle' week over on the Tando Creative Blog and I am sharing a binder I made Di.

I painted the binder in a Brenda mix of vintage pink. both inside and out, using the DecoArt Premium Acrylics.

Next I glued some tissue wrap on the front and back panels and when dry I dipped them in watery titanium white, titan buff and primary magenta several times drying between each dip.
I then vintaged it by mixing a dirty glaze using premium matte medium, burnt umber and dark grey together with some water and painted it all over.

I made the oval vintage lady embellishment and created the label by applying some titan buff acrylic paint to my craft mat and then squidged the chipboard shapes into it to get a bit of texture on them, then stamped with one of Andy's IA Tech Trauma texture stamps. I inked the edges of the photograph with brown distress ink, adhered it to the oval shape and then covered it all with a layer of clear crackle glaze. When dry I rubbed in some white and brown antiquing cream.

There's a magnet under the flap to keep the binder closed when it's not being used,

Now it's ready to be filled or given to someone as a special gift.
