So this week's challenge over at Studio L3 is from page 48 of Tim's book. It's a technique called "Shattered Stains." And it is one of my favorites!! I really wanted to do something a little different with it this time, though. Whenever I have used this technique in the past, it was with flowers or leaves or hearts--smaller accent-type pieces. This time I thought I would try using it for the entire background.
So... I cut a piece of grungepaper from Tim's tag die and gessoed it first before I added the Rock Candy Crackle Paint. I was a bit impatient, so I dried the gesso AND the Rock Candy. It came out with lots of fine crackle, which was fine with me. I added some Distress Stains and I really like how the door came out looking like an old, weathered peeling door!
