I had got some bits and pieces ready and I had even made a piece of chipboard into a wood effect piece, but then I got carried away and stamped on it before the GP had dried and guess what I ruined it lol!! After a bit of playing around I came up with the idea of making some chipboard tiles using grunge paste mixed with Fresco Finish. I did two with toffee and two with ice blue. I also had a small craftersworkshop heart stencil and so added some grunge paste through that too, on top of the crackle!
I had a bit of grunge paste left on my craft mat and rather than waste it I pressed a piece of bubble wrap into and left it to dry. This is the odd orangey bit at the bottom, I just quite liked it!! I added some embellishments (which I had covered in clear gesso) onto the beige background and a bit of tissue tape. Then out came my new colour bursts, oh and what fun they are, a little squirt of that magic powder goes quite a way. Especially once you start spraying it with water!! It even mixes beautifully with grunge paste, in fact maybe a little too well. I thought I had wiped my craft mat of any residue before I put the grunge paste on it, but no sooner had I squirted on the Orange colour burst than a bit of blue appeared, I added a bit more orange, a bit of yellow even a bit of red, but all this mixed with blue just made it look - well let's just say it looked a very unpleasant shade of brown!! I swiped it through the laugh stencil anyway and then left it to dry and then once dry squirted some more colour on and this did make it look considerably better. I sprayed the main canvas and everything on it with perfect pearls, which gave it a lovely pearlescent finish. I then popped some treasured silver on the embellishments and around the edge of the canvas.
I do hope you like it as much as I do, tomorrow it's going up on my craft room wall!!
As always do let me know your thoughts.
