colour




well with uni we are focused on black and white, so I am getting in as much colour play when I'm on a break as I possibly can.
I had a sample board I had done a few months ago, it used resist stamping and starburst stains, today I was playing with the new Kaiser silk flowers and Prima Pebbles that we just got in at FTN and I thought I would make use of the sample board, well after I stuck the altered flowers on the board looked a bit bright, so I got out a pot of TH crackle paint and painted it on roughly...I looooove that it soaked up some of the colour as it dried and cracked, it is definitely worth a play...a word of advice though, I do recommend sealing the crackle as it can be quite fragile, personally I use gel medium...I bet you knew I was going to say that :)
