Looking at techniques

this is something we like to do a lot of at Scrapbook Sisters and there are 2 classes in November which use some of Tim Holtz wonderful products. On Saturday 1st we will be making some cards using Crackle Paint, Distress Ink Pads and Adirondack Paint Dabbers. On the last Saturday of November we will again be using a variety of tool to make our Altered Art Charm Bracelet.

If you haven't tried the Crackle paint yet then take a look at the following examples and I'm sure you'll want to have a go.

On this tag you can see both the background and the alphabet coated in crackle paint. It gives a great effect with very little effort.

Tag 2 again has a crackle backgound. The square picture frame is made from acetate and stamped. The image behind the window was hand drawn by Sally West. We are hoping to get her to draw some new stamps for us so watch this space. She is a very talented artist.

Tag 3 again has a crackle background but this time Sally has stamped over the top and used a white pen to highlight the title.

Tag 4 and this time most of the imagery is done directly on to the tag and enhanced with glitter. A piece of acetate has them been stamped and put over the top of the tag giving a 3d impression. (sorry the photo doesn't do this any justice at all).

Tag 5 is our last tag and shows just how good a peel off can be (Yes I said peel off). All of the stamping and the peel off spiders are on the crackle background but by putting the stamped acetate over the top it gives the tag a whole new look.

I want to thank Sally for these great examples and hope that you will all want to give Crackle Paint a go.
