Playing with distress crackle paint and perfect pearls


While I was making another class project
for next month,
my dear friend, Suryanti, gave me 
this cute bird house box to play with.
Thanks, Sur!

I covered it with 7 gypsies collage tissues
which turned out have to be handled 
extra careful when applied with gel medium.
(See my un-patient finger caused
the shred at the corner at the photo above,
and again at the photo below.
But I kept going.)


 The time to play was just perfect
when I got the distress crackle paint
the following day.
Here I used 'vintage photo' color


I watched several video about this product 
on youtube before,and I tried several thickness
to see the differences.

This is the result for medium thickness.


finishing the edges using 


Then, it's time to play with the stamp!
here I used Melody Ross' stamp.


On Tim Holtz's video, 
he uses distress ink to stamp,
to give some extra time to put on
the Perfect Pearls, also from Rangers.



Here is the result,
after I blurred the edge using spray mist.


And I tried other color of perfect pearls
to the edge.
I love the bold shimmer effect.
To seal the pearl,
I spray some Winsor&Newton


There.
My time to play is up.
I have to get back to my project,
since the deadline is getting closer.
Yaiks.

I'll post again when I finished 
embellish the inside mini album!

Bye for now.

yaaaaaaayyyyyy!
so happy and so grateful having a dear friend like you, who turn my birdie house box into something beautiful!
Muchas Gracias, sweetie...mwah mwaaaaah
