Big Hair layout by Kim


I love to create crackled backgrounds on my projects but I always found it such a long winded process to first coat the background with some paint, then a layer of crackle medium and afterwards another layer of paint.
Thankfully with the fabulous CRACKLE PAINT stamp, all you need is an ink pad at the ready :)



Stamp anywhere on your background and while the ink is still wet, sprinkle a few bits of embossing powder randomly onto the motif. Once you set the embossing powder with your heat gun, this will make for an interesting two tone/two textured look.


I also made use of the flower stem from the ONCE UPON A TIME set to enhance the cluster of flowers and leaves

And here is the complete layout again - it was a breeze to create it when you don't have to wait for layers of paint and crackle medium to dry.

Supplies used:
Cardstock - Donna Salazar Artistic Papers for GCD Studios
Mists - Donna Salazar Smooch Spritz for Clearsnap
Ink - Donna Salazar Mixed Media Inx for Clearsnap
Journaling Spots - Sassafras Lass, Elle's Studio
Stickers - American Crafts, Dymo
Pearls - Want2Scrap
Other - Embroidery Floss, Blossoms
