Hi I'm Clare, and as you can probably tell by my blog name I love to craft. It is a hobby of mine which I fit in my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant in a primary school, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

Having a cracking time!


Hi, it's Clare here with a quick little post for the weekend.  As some of you may know I have been following the wanderlust project and recently Andy Skinner did a fabulous project so using his fabulous techniques and some decoart products I had a go at creating my own crackle effect art.




This was a mirror from that famous Swedish furniture store.  Using texture paste I scraped over the mirror and stamped into the paste.  Once dried I was able to paint and apply these gorgeous products such as antiquing cream and interference paint. 


 
This project was a plaque that was on sale at Sainsbury.  Using texture paste and decoart's crackle paste I built up the layers, added some paint and finished with some antiquing cream.


Thank you for stopping by today.  I'll be back soon and have some exciting news to share with you.  I hope you have enjoyed your visit?  Remember you can leave your comments below.

Crafty hugs,
