Today--leaving--for my final show of the season--so happy!! I think it was getting to me more this year because this past year is the first time I've been blogging and being active with other online art activities, and I've missed it alot!!
But before I left I just wanted to squeeze in a few more pieces--completely unrelated to Christmas. I've been pretty much focusing on Christmas since the end of September, and I just wanted to play around a little. So thanks to K & Co., Tim Holtz, and Ranger--I did. Just had some fun--
I used the Ranger Distress Crackle Paint around the edges, and the more I use it, the more I love it. It comes in all of the distress ink colors, and it ALWAYS works!
See all of the tiny cracks it makes--I love that!
On these, I used the weathered wood and scattered straw crackle paints, and then put a burnt umber wash over it when it was dry (that's when the cracks magically appear) and like all crackle when you wipe off the burnt umber, it stays in the cracks.
I'm as ready as I'll ever be, and I might even catch in a little shopping while I'm there, since there's a big mall right down the road. I love to shop and haven't been able to even do this, but that will be changing. I'll try to visit everyone this weekend too!
