It Cracks me up!

Thought I had better catch up on what I have been up to the past few days, my workshop last weekend was cancelled due to the awful weather so I used the time to update my website and this blog so that they kind of match and look similar, I was going to move the blog over to the website but after looking into it it's far to much hassle!

I have also been experimenting with new product and techniques, below is a book box using Decoart Texture Crackle, mediums and Traditions Acrylic paint.

I achieved some really nice effects on this Iridescent project, needs a bit more tinkering and its hard to see  from a photo but as you turn the book cover in the light it changes from pink to purple to blue to green!
