There is a challenge blog called 'A Vintage Journey' and as some of you might know I really love vintage. So after looking for quite some time I finally decided to play along with November's challenge which is called "Cracking up !" And no, they are not all mad; it is about crackle... I happen to love crackle so I crackled my heart out on this project which is an art journal.
I used crackle paste and a stencil on the background and painted it this pastel blue when it was dry. The crackle was accentuated with antiquing cream and Distress Ink. I added some stamping and some splattering too. I added crackle paste to the little panel and treated it in mostly the same way. I added some torn ribbon, some book text and a die cut doily to make the panel a little more interesting. I also added a number plaque and the photo is one of a pack of Tim Holtz, I think they are called lost relatives or something. I coloured her a bit with pencils.
Lastly I put everything together and added the sentiment.
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
