I Cracked Up!

Last week I had a go at doing the crackle medium and acrylic paint technique and I failed miserably…. then I found out, through watching some video tutorials on youtube that I had in fact shut the door after the horse had bolted so to speak…

I painted the acrylic paint on the chipboard first, then I applied the crackle medium….. clearly the wrong way round… you should apply the crackle medium first, allow to dry, then apply the acrylic paint lol ….. i’m such a dozy mare!!

Anyway, i’m quite happy to share my disasters here too… it’s all about learning new things 🙂

So here we have 2 tags of chipboard, sent over to me from my friend Micki in the US all lovely and cracked up, just as they should be 🙂 so these will be making their way into my Dogs mini album very soon

Supplies Used :-

  • 2 x chipboard Tags (Thanks Micki)
  • Plaid FolkArt Crackle Medium
  • Plaid FolkArt 902 Taffy Acrylic Paint
  • Plaid FolkArt Licorice Acrylic Paint
  • 1 x Jam Jar of Water and a wee paint brush 🙂
