I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I got the chance to finish a project I started a few days ago. I began with a background that I have made with brusho's but this time using them slightly differently, I first saw this technique on Anjas wonderful blog HERE and love the effect that she created, clingfilm and perfect pearls pewter spray.
Onto glassy card I sprinkled brusho's, a little water and sprays of perfect pearls pewter spray to also activate these little cystals of colour. I then laid scrunched up clingfilm onto top and wrinkled it around, once dry I removed the clingfilm and was left with this wonderful effect, unfortunately the camera doesn't pick up the pewter but it runs through the colour.
I then used Wendy Vecchi crackled texture paste through Crafters workshop "Mini Fish Fossils" stencil. I like how the wet paste has picked up some of the colours from the background I have also tinted them slightly with marigold distress stain.
You can see the crackled effect better here on a close up picture
I have used some Tim Holtz remnant rubs to finish this off.
I am currently looking for new ways to use Brusho crystals and really like how this technique has turned out.
I would like to enter this into this months challenge at Country View Challenges
their theme for September is NAUTICAL.
thanks for stopping by and have a lovely saturday evening,
