Hello all, welcome to my blog!
It´s June already, can you believe?! A new month means a new challenge over at Country View Challenges. This month I have the honor to host this challenge and we want to see "Crackle" somewhere on your project!
I made a tag with different crackle mediums. I love crackles, they are so mystic anyhow ;-).
For my tag I used 3 different crackle mediums: Texture Crackle, Crackle Glaze and Crackle Accents.
After coating my tag with matte medium, I started with Crackle Texture, which I mixed with mica powder gold - well, it didn´t turn out that golden, that I imagined and when it dried, the cracks were not that visible I wanted. But I like it the way it is!
When the paste was still wet, I put in some tiny little clock gears (they are soo cute, aren´t they?!), old lace and some clear gems. After drying I added some 13@rts Ayeeda Mist in Chalk Woodbine. After this was dry, I brushed Antiquing Creme Raw Umber over the surface and wiped the most of it with a baby wipe off.
To get some more crackle effect, I added randomly Crackle Glaze and left it over night to let it dry. In the morning I was happily surprised, that at the parts, where the crackle glaze were added, the woodbine mist was so much more visible! A lovely effect!
The next step was to matte my picture , one of a Vintage Ephemeria, with the same paper. First I cut some leftover pretty paper into stripes, distressed and colored the edges with DI gathered twigs and glued it onto the tag. I added some of the same lace frome the background and some thread. I distessed the edges of the picture too and colored the with DI gathered twigs, then I gave a small amount of Crackle Accents on two edges of it - love, how it turned out!
I cut out the word adventure from an acetate, which was the back of a Prima flowers package - never throw away anything, we can use it all ;-)
Now I glued some diecut leaves and a rolled rose I made ages ago.
The final touch was made with DecoArt media fluid acrylics in metallic gold (it´s one of my favourite golds), which I dry brushed over parts of the surface and the rose and last but not least the lace on top came into place.
Well, I hope, you like my tag and all the crackles!
Come back in two days, I will share my second Crackle project with you!
Thank you for your visit today!
