Art Journal Page 193

Hi everyone!

Just playing around today, testing out Tim Holtz's distress crackle paint and how best to use it - well not the way I did today! I wasn't happy with how this page turned out but will try again until I master it! LOL

I started out using excess paint from the tag #4, added some white, then it went all downhill from there. Once I added the crackle medium around the border it just went sour! I did not like how it framed the page and don't think it worked with the final result. Oh well, another learning curve LOL.

Hi everyone!

Today's page was based on the Tag #4 challenge over on my Art Journal Techniques FaceBook group page. Crackle medium! Oh how I dislike this technique! Only because I haven't mastered the art of the crackling yet. No matter how many times I try it, I never seem to get it right every time, hit and miss for me. Then I go and draw the hearts upside down! Just wasn't my day today! Oh well, get used to it Jen, there'll be plenty more of those to come LOL.

Having Fun With Shipping Tags No.4

Hi everyone!

So, those that have watched my videos for a while know that I have a love/hate relationship with Crackle Medium and this one was no different! When I applied the top coat after the crackle medium I painted it on way too thick in areas and it didn't crack *sigh*. Oh well, I will learn one day - maybe!
