Get Cracking! with That's Crafty! Challenge Blog

Hello all, a very quick post from me to show you my inspiration piece from our new challenge at That's Crafty! Challenge Blog where for the next fortnight our theme is Get Cracking! so be it paint or paste, a cracked look is what we would like to see!


My crackle is rather delicate like cracked eggshells. I coloured a large That's Crafty! Surfaces MDF panel with Gesso then used stencil paste to add some pattern wth the Quatrefoil 1 Background Dinky Stencil. This was left to dry thoroughly.
I painted over the top with green and blue acrylic paints then brushed on a thick coat of Cosmic Shimmer Crackle Paint in blue and green in the areas that didn't have the textured stencilling. I then left this overnight and waited for the crackle to appear. Sorry about the colour difference here, I took the pic below mid creating and the light was terrible at the time which is why it looks rather different!


I stamped the flower from Paper Artsy Eclectica Lin Brown ELB15 twice on a scrap of orange Gelli Plate coloured paper and then stamped on the tiny flowers from the set with Ranger Wild Orchid dye ink. I stamped the leafy stalk on green Gelli Plate paper and cut this out together with the flowers.
 I added the flower to the panel with foam tape then embellished with a yellow gem and some Chit Chat stickers which I swiped with leftover paint to blend them in. I stamped some of the tiny flowers on the panel with Archival Fern Green ink to draw everything together.


Have a great day and a lovely weekend.
