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 !!
