Hi, Thank you to everyone who has posted comments and joined my blog, it totally blows me away. thanks.
Right on with the show, this week over at the Haunted Design House their challenge is 'Vintage Vile' so I thought I would try out a technique I saw demo'd this weekend at The Craft Barn's annual Extravaganza. This technique was shown by Andy Skinner go check out his blog, I love his style and use a lot of what he has taught.Its basically using a paint on crackle medium between coats of paint but then gets taken further with the stamping technique and colour washes etc. The end result, hopefully is a vintage, paint cracked piece.
On the inside I used two different Tim Holtz papers to line the box, these were cut in one piece folded and stuck in place,distressed a little with distress inks.
The heart was a plain wooden heart that I stained with distress stains,fired brick and then distressed with a bit of walnut stain, the other half was some tissue paper I grabbed from the clothing store All Saints, (good find or what?) and was all covered with wax from the melting pot. I also threw in a stamped 'red 13' card stamped on acetate to finish it off.
Can Anyone spot the Deliberate mistake???? should their be a prize??
