Board Book and Crackle


This is the last of my crackle projects and actually was my first attempt on this
I wasn't too happy with the result so put it aside until I'd decided what to do with it.
It was a product that was new to me so I needed to practise using it. 
With this first result I didn't achieve a good crackle due to not applying the paint or
Also I learnt not to try and recover the area I had first applied.
Anyhow I ended up with a good distressed background all be it not the crackle I was hoping for.

I then used a selection of stencils, mainly from The Crafters Workshop with distress inks and random stamping just using the 
Penny Black Slapstick Fanciful stamp without an acrylic block.

Futher interest was created by adding scrim, tiny beads, metal key, seam binding coloured with distress ink and some sparkly fibres.

All in all I think this turned out to be a good result and I hope you like it too.

  1. Love all these textures and layers on this page! I have tried the Crackle medium thin and thick and it worked in both cases, so it is likely there are several factors at play, such as the thickness of the top coat, the type of acrylic paint, its moisture content etc... It's like a box of chocolates! I love chocolates...


We'd love to know what you think, so please feel free to leave a comment. Every one is greatly appreciated.
