Wooden it be lovely!

Hi everyone,
I have made a start on a couple of the wooden pieces and also a new chipboard item.
Below is a small key Chest from the Craft Barn which has been painted with Americana acrylic, a little bit of alcohol sprayed on and some Distress Ink. It was then finished with Decoart’s two part Perfect Crackle medium, I love this stuff as it is so controllable and you get great results every time.

Next is a tin roof bird house, this again has been painted with Americana acrylic which is waterproof, a little Distress ink, Alcohol Ink for the tin roof and finally sprayed with some Perfect Pearls Mists.

And finally I just received this today, its a chipboard suitcase! It comes in two sizes, the smallest being 25cm x 20cm x 8cm and the next size up is 27.5cm x 22.5cm x 9.5cm.
It would make a lovely memory box. I have decorated this one Vagabond style to keep old postcards in!
