Calico Craft Parts blog. And who am I to break the flow... (besides, Halloween/autumn and Christmas are my favourite crafting themes of all)...
I altered this little shrine (they come with a choice of having a shelf too).
used the lost coast rubber stamp based on the painting "American
Gothic" as the background. coloured with watercolour pens and pencils
and sealed before adding a coat of DecoArt crackle glaze. the cracks
have been highlighted with Decoart media fluid paint. a nice bright
painted the front panel with black acrylic, let it dry and added more
DecoArt Crackle glaze. I highlighted the crackle on this more than once
to get a it of variation in colour. firstly i used the orange. when that
had all dried I used DecoArt white antiquing cream. it really shows the
fantastic crackle up well.
A bit more painting and gluing the
embellishments and then I assembled it all. (the little orange apples
(dots) are left ov er parts from the shrine feet. I didn't use them all)
