Hi friends! Autumn Clark of SewPaperPaint with you today for a guest post. Today I'm sharing a second variation of the crackle project I first posted HERE.
I was in the mood to make some grungy mixed media and pooled together my all time favorite IndigoBlu stamps for this project.
First I painted a piece of mat board with Goldfinger metallic paint. I distressed the edges of the painted panel, then sponged with sepia archival ink.
My panel was cut double the size of the Crackleglaze stamp. I applied Super Thick Slap It On with a palette knife then pressed the image into the wet paste two times for complete coverage. It is important to quickly wash your stamp with a brush afterwards.
I dried my panel with a hair dryer on the coolest setting. Once it was mostly dry I quickly wiped on black GeeSso Good and then wiped away most of the gesso with a wet cloth.
It helped to spritz with water before wiping. I had forgotten how I made the first crackle panel with a Distress Crayon, but in the end really liked the effect of the black GeeSso Good.
The finished result resembles cracked glass with the Goldfinger paint beneath. I sponged the edges with sepia archival ink for a little depth.
I stamped the Numbers Collectors Edition stamp in gold on a black panel for a mat. I would like to turn this into a handmade journal cover, but for now it is a card.
For my focal image I embossed in black the Flutterby Dinkie onto leftover inky card. I fussy cut it and layered over a bundle of string and an oval stamped with the larger numbers from the Shine Bright set. I used the paint as ink this time. I love the uneven effect it gives.
Finally I partially stamped pieces of the sentiment from the Shine Bright set and cut them out to make a different wording. I added a key charm to complete the look.
