Tilda & Friends ATC Challenge - Beads


Here's my entry for this weeks Tilda ATC challenge, which this week was to incorporate beads. I coloured my atc base with some shimmery paints (similar to Twinkling H2Os, but the cheaper alternative!!), then decided to colour the tilda with the same paints. I wasn't quite sure how it would turn out, but I was very pleased with the results, and it's all lovely and shimmery, but I don't think it has come out on the photo. I then replaced the "sea" with beads. Meanwhile, my little girl is now making a similar effort - I'll post hers shortly!!! Watch this space ...

Right, here's Bryony's (age 5), and I think she may have done a better job than I did! She stuck beads on to the skirt (as you can see, the glue's still wet!!), and I helped her to make a lollipop out of a larger bead and wire. She coloured the image and the background with the twinkly paints.
