Compendium Challenge #14

Happy Wednesday all !!    I have been so bad about blogging .. I was doing so good at the beginning of the year and then it's like all my creative time was taken up by other things.  At least with the Compendiums Challenge I blog every other week  :)   

The challenge this time around is 53 - Colored Crackle.  I was crackle challenged until I sent Tim  an email and asked him what the heck I was doing wrong, I couldn't get it to crackle at all.   Tim said to spread it like peanut butter, glob it on and being the smarty that he is .. IT WORKED !!  :)   I was spreading a thin layer so it would dry quicker and that just wasn't the way to do it !

So I had started out to do a tag, but next to me was a little hook thingy that I got at Hobby Lobby on the sale rack for $2.40.   I don't have a before pic, but it was black/white zebra print inside and the same blue frame.   So I coated the inside with silver paint and then I threw on some distress clear rock candy glitter.  

I die cut the snowman and snow flakes out of grunge paper and then put the rock candy crackle paint on the snowman and the snowflakes.    I used walnut stain, wild honey and picket fence distress paint and silver and pool adirondack paints to paint the snowman and snowflakes.    Here's my snowman


Then I added some of Tim's stars and a word band with some of his trimmings to finish it off.   Here is the final project.  I have to say I think it turned out pretty good !! 

Remember if you need details or want to check the super talented Curiosity Crew's projects go to (link on right side on blog)   Tim and Mario are giving an awesome prize pack to the crews choice and Funkie Junkie Boutique (link on the right side on blog)  is giving away a $25 gift card to a random draw. 

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week and weekend.  I know mine will be fun because it's my birthday weekend .. nothing like getting 3 days out of a birthday.   It's actually Monday and it's the BIG 5-0 !!!    Yikes

Thanks for stopping in for a look .. Happy Crafting !!!!
