June Challenge - Crackle

Welcome everyone to our June Challenge

This months theme is Crackle chosen by Evelyn, checkout what our Designers have created and then get crackling
I love crackles - there is always some kind of magic by using several crackle mediums! To show you some different possibilities of the use of crackle mediums, I decided to make a little vintage tag. If you want to know more about how I made, please hop over to my blog!
June is the month in which we will be celebrating Father's day, here in the UK, on Sunday 19th. I decided to make a Father's Day card, with a crackle base, for my dear Dad.  I used DecoArt products, vintage book pages and a childhood photo of me. A step by step of how I created this can be found over at my blog here.

I love crackle, I find I'm using it more and more in my crafting. However, it doesn't always go well, and this piece has been an exercise in painting over in white and starting over again. Full details can be found here on my blog.

I love using crackle mediums and there are so many of them out there. On my blog today I am sharing the effects of four of the DecoArt ones, how you can use them and how you can get five different techniques from them. If you look closely the four cups all have a different finish as does the background. There's crackle galore.

Hello there - I have experimented with a new to me crackle technique to make this piece - I think the crackle is very cool - come and see more over at my blog here.

To ease you in our Crackle theme, I picked an easy, no fuss, no mess method of getting crackle on your makes! Come and see the details on my blog and I'll get you crackling in no time!

Addicted to Art - PaperArtsy Hot Picks and crackle texture paste
For this challenge I used a wooden panel as my substrate adding crackle texture paste along with these fabulous PaperArtsy butterflies. Do join me at Addicted to Art for more details today.

For our June Challenge I created a canvas board with hot air balloons. To fulfill our requirements I made a crackled background and I also crackled the hot air balloons. For this I used 2 types of crackle medium and on my blog you will find the details. Thanks!
Wow, June already ! For this first inspiration piece for Evelyn's "crackle" theme,  I have created a little wallhanging made out of a stirring stick for paint from the DIY place ! 
If you want to know how I made this, then hop over to my blog HERE and I will show you ! 
I'll be back later in the month with another inspiration piece ! 
Until then ! Corrie x

I decided to have some fun with my Tim Holtz Village Dwelling Die this month and used crackle paste on my walls for this fanciful little blue house.  Join me over on my blog if you would like to see more.

I love crackle - there are so many ways to achieve the look and it can add some fabulous texture to our projects! This is a cardboard base with some PaperArtsy crackle paint on top - please pop by my blog where I show the three easy steps and how I used the finished project! Gabrielle x
