Believe in Your Star
The month of November is drawing to a close and I am the last of the DT at Country View Challenges to post in what has been a star struck month! I had great fun creating this little star decoration but sadly the light in the craft room just lately has been so poor I have been unable to take photographs as I have gone along.
I started with a little cube made using the smallest of the cubes on the Sissix 3D Blocks Die. I tore up strips of printed tissue paper and stuck them all over the box at random with multi medium. After a coat of DecoArt Crackle Glaze had dried I rubbed White DecoArt Antiquing Cream all over the box and this left a really lovely subtle vintage crackle.
I bought some wooden stars from Hobbycraft many years ago and didn't really know what to do with them, but having been on the DecoArt Courses this year everything is getting a crackle make-over! I painted the star first with Raw Sienna Fluid Acrylics before adding DecoArt Crackle Paint. Once it crackled the vintage brown paint was visible in the cracks.
The addition of a couple of embellishments was really all it needed as it really is SMALL !!!
Thank you so much for joining me today and here's looking forward to a new challenge at Country View Challenges on Thursday.
