Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog!
Today for the Tres Jolie Kit Club, I’m bringing you, well, “Today”!! A kind of shabby, kind of rustic memo board I created using items from the kit, items from my stash, and some scrap door casing.
I love how the crackle paint came out on this! I gave me the aged look I was really wanting! Check the video to see how everything went together!
As I mentioned in the video, this project went together rather quickly! I let the flowers air dry so the color could bleed how it wanted, and with the help of my heat gun the mediums were dry in no time!
Here are some close ups of that beautiful cracking:
Aren’t those cracks just amazing? I think it’s some of the best cracking I’ve had. Ever!
I love the bit of sparkle with the Lindy’s Magical Powder, it goes so well with that shine from the Metallic Gilding Polish.
To get that aged look on the frame I layered the crackle paste on top of a coat of the Lindy’s Magical Powder. Because the Lindy’s is water-based it was easily reactivated and absorbed by the paste!
This isn’t in the video, because I thought of it later, but I added a light coating of some Tim Holtz Matte Collage Medium on clothes pin that has the polish. Just enough to add some protection to being touched!
I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done using items from this months kit!
