That Craft Place Anything Goes August 2nd Challenge

Hi all

i am back with another DT project for That Craft Place Challenge Blog. If you would like to join our mixed media challenge then link up your blog to for a chance to win some goodies.

I have a layout to share this month and i will start off with a bit about how to build the background. 

I started by using the mini squares stencil mask and then painted over it with DecoArt Crackle paint.

 Once dry  i took  three spritzing inks: Artiste Cardinal Red, DecoArt Purple Mister, DecoArt Magenta Mister and spritzed them on to the page. I then spritzed water over them and let the colours run into each other and added even more ink and let it run down the page. I finished off the background by using texture stamps and stamping them arounfdthe page randomly.

I used a wooden frame from the That Craft Place shop and painted it with crackle paint before spritzing with inks. To stop the page bubbling up spritz water onto the front and back of the page as you dry it with a heat gun.

I used a photo of my Nan and Grandad

I spritzed white paper flowers with misters

I added lace and textile in between  the paper layers to add texture and painted the MDF word to use as a title.
