I've Been Inspired (But Not By The Weather)


Michelle's last project for the week at PaperArtsy was to alter a pencil case. I've had one of those really pale wooden ones kicking around for ages, so it was time to meet the paintbrush. Actually I use cut and dry foam now thanks sooo much for the tip Leandra.
My PA crackle glaze had arrived in the morning  - I've counted up and already have 4 other makes of crackle medium. I love the effect but cannot ever get one to work for me (I think know that I'm too impatient)  So I watched the YouTube video and gave it a go. This stuff really works! Instantly! Yes it's idiot proof :-)
I've used loads of colours, and crackle, and sanding, and stamps from Ink and The Dog Man of Number 4, Gentlemen 4 and Clocks 1. 
Sorry about the rubbish photograph but it's raining (they promised snow) and there is no light to be had!
I've learned so much from everyone over the last month, and had so much fun using my old PA stamps, so thanks very much everyone at PaperArtsy Towers you really have been inspirational.
Thanks very much for looking, and I hope the weather is kind to you x

  6. That is gorgeous, Sue! I have a pencil box that has had a coat or two of paint and PVA and is ready for stamping, but I am a chicken, lol!
