There are many crackle products and the one that I have chosen today is Crackle Glaze from Paperartsy.
I began by painting Fresco acrylic French Roast to a rectangle cut from a cereal packet. Next, I applied the crackle glaze with a palette knife and allowed it to dry. Finally, I painted over with Vintage lace and the crackles started to appear almost immediately.
When it was dry, I stamped, using Black Archival, sprinkled clear embossing powder over the top and heat embosssed my image. She is from Lynne Perrella, Paperartsy LPC033.
I chose some fabric as a background, which I thought complimented the image and chose more frescos to match.
I painted my image using the above colours and framed it with a gold leaf pen.
I also added a die cut frame in gold card which I rubbed with Treasure Gold in Aquamarine.
After I had stitched the fabric, I attached the panel with glue and added a Kaisercraft Bookplate. I made a hanger by shredding the fabric.
Here is a close up of the crackle effect.
Finally, just because I could, I added some bobbly trim at the bottom and around the hanger. A friend of mine used to run an upholstery business and kindly gave me all her samples.
Thankyou for looking and I hope that this has inspired you to get crackling! And don't forget to visit the Country View crafts Blog for more crackling fun.
