I should be be doing a bit of house-wifey stuff but sometimes a creative diversion is just too good to resist. I really fancied joining in with a couple of challenges, just for my own arty(ish) fun and rustled up a tag for both Linda's Grungy Monday and Sunday Stampers from Hels.
Linda asked us to get cracking with crackle resist, all explained by Mr. H here and over at Hel's it's all about the windows of the soul, the eyes! For some reason I could feel the blues calling me, so I went for a shabby pallet throwing in the darker tones. I swooshed on Weathered Wood Crackle Paint, dried, and then rough strokes with my Pool Dabber for the background.
The eyeful damsel is from Art it For a Queen and I thought her lovely gaze would look good set in an Idea-ology Book Plate which has been coated in layers of UTEE and Alcohol Inks. I stapled a strip of vintage ruler behind and then added wire thread and a button.
