Good morning happy stampers and goodly decoupagers. How are you today? I'm feeling better after taking it a bit easier yesterday - I missed my class - what a rebel - but will be running today so thats okay......I'm feeling a little worn out with hubby being away - he really does quite a lot in terms of children entertaining! Still he won't be too long now!
Onto today - well I was so happy when I came back from the show at the weekend - I had my kroma crackle that I was so excited about, my black gesso and even a heart shape to alter - so I got to work on sunday night - gessoed the heart and once dry painted with acrylic paint and then added some pan pastels and stamped some bits and bobs on to the heart - including some sheet music that I stamped in versa mark then covered with clear powder and heat set. I then added more colours to use the music as a resist. Finally, once happy, I added my kroma crackle and then began the long wait. Come Monday night there was no change - just a milky appearance to my piece. Come Tuesday night it was the same - on Wednesday night there were a few crackles - but nothing much. I applied my heat gun and made sure all was dry then added some stamped cracks from sheenas aged perfectly set of stamps. I must say I am disappointed with the crackles from the kroma crackle - I will read the instructions again very carefully and have another go - has anybody else had some fab success???? I finished off with some slap it on then decorated with leaves (crafty emblies) and butterflies (stamped and mounted onto mouldable film and heated to give dimension). I'm quite pleased overall but not with the crackles.
I think I've waffled enough!
