Today we're kicking off the second week of the Frilly and Funkie challenge which is Snap, Crackle, Crackle and our host is the lovely Pamellia. Here is what Pamellia has to say:
I would like to see some cracks on your creations! You can use crackle
paint, crackle paste, crackle glaze, crackle accents, an old cracked
image, a piece of cracked UTEE, a cracked pattern from a stencil or
stamp, you can even doodle on your crackle design! Anything goes, as
long as is cracks me up!!
Now when I saw the word crackle I knew exactly what I wanted to use, the fabulous Wendy Vecchi Crackle Paste ! I bought a book of chipboard houses recently and rather than decorate the whole book I rather liked the idea of using each house individually. I painted the house with Little Black Dress Fresco Finish paint then tinted some Crackle Paste with Cornflower Blue Archival re-inker. I spread it over the whole house and then left it to dry.
I then used Sky Blue and Cornflower Blue Archival ink over the surface of the crackle.
I then started to stencil using Hydrangea, Cornflower Blue and Watering Can Archival inks. Then I used Fern Green Archival ink and did some stamping using the Wendy Vecchi Lots of Leaves background stamp.
I used the flower from the Wendy Vecchi Discover Art stamp set and stamped it with black Archival ink and used the grasses stamp from the Art Comforts set. The flowers have been sprayed with watered down Fresco Finish paints and I've rubbed Fern Green Archival ink around the edge of the two canvas flowers.
The little frames are by Prima and I've painted them with Limelight and Hey Pesto Fresco Finish paint. The number is stencilled onto some card and stuck to the back of the frame. I painted some Golden acrylic paints below the key and before it dried I wiped it back with a baby wipe to create a rusty effect.
The lock and oval frame have also been painted with the same Fresco Finish paints and I've used the Golden paints again to create more rusty stains. The sentiment is from the Wendy Vecchi Art Comforts set.
The rest of the DT have created some fabulous projects so do make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog.
