Cracking up!!


Hi Everyone,
I have been having a lovely messy time decorating this set of little milk bottles.
I started by coating with gesso, then a pretty teal/blue paint, followed by crackling medium, and then an off white paint over the top, which crackled quite nicely. I also overstamped with a crackle stamp by Indigo Blu. I then decorated by winding some sparkly blue thread around the neck, diecut leaves and flourish and a pretty flower.

Pixies Crafty Workshop - I used snippets for the die cuts

Thanks for looking and have a great week
