Crackled landscape

Over on the Country View Crafts blog our topic is about Crackle.
I chose DecoArt White Crackle Paste for my creation.
I started with a piece of Heavy Grey Board which measures 7"x5" and roughly drew a few guidelines.
Next, I selected some Paperartsy fresco paints in blues, greens and purples.
I mixed each colour with my crackle paste and applied it in layers onto the board. While it was still wet I added some Mica flakes and Beadazzles onto it.

Next, I dripped some Dina Wakley Night acrylic paint which was watered down into the crevices, dividing up the colours.

I then outlined the contours by adding bling. I stuck on loads of jewels, beads and added some stickles.

I thought about adding a sentiment, but decided to leave it just as a piece of art.
Finally, here is a close up of the crackle! 

I hope that you are inspired to join in over at Country View Crafts, where you will find lots more crackling ideas!
