Vintage bottle with crakel medium

Hello everyone Pooja here!
Today I have an altered art project with one step Crackle Medium that oozes out an awesome vintage appeal.
Have a look

Most of you know now how to do simple decoupage,  I have also done decoupage on my bottle first but with a is the process
  1. I have taken a bottle of my choice. After cleaning it,  I applied Moda burgundy paint all over it.

2. After it dried, I applied one step Crackle Medium evenly all over it.

3. When it was almost dry, I applied Butternut Squash shade of Little Birdie Chalk Paint vertically with a brush. I also added few drops of yellow acrylic paint to give it a double tone effect.

After some time, beautiful cracked effect appeared on the bottle.
4. The next step was to apply decoupage glue on the base of bottle to stick my decoupage napkin. I placed it where I wanted, you can use your own design and placement that pleases you!

6. Did some stamping with Itsy Bitsy stamps.

5. Thereafter I applied decoupage glue on the entire bottle to seal it.
6. Next, I used Mocha shade of Color Splash and used a brush to spread it (used few drops of water to thin it down a little). After it dried, I applied some brown and green  shades of distress ink with a soft hand.
7. Added some  handmade flowers, resin embellishments,  stickers, micro beads and other decorative accessories from the store and my stash to decorate the bottle.
8. Hung some metal embellishments along with a tiny handmade book with "Best Wishes" sentiment.

It turned out to be so pretty that I could not stop at one, here's another one for you.....

I hope you liked my project. Try out different  creations with the Crackle Medium, it's a truly fantastic product to use!!
If you have any queries, please feel free to ask. I will be extremely happy to get back to you.

DT post for itsy bitsy

Hello everyone Pooja here,

I am back again with  another DT  creation of mine for itsy bitsy made with Mixed Media paste and Little Birdie's one step Crackle Medium.  This is totally an experiment for me where I worked with both products to create my background. This is also my first experience with Little Birdie's Crackle Medium, but I am totally happy with the outcome.
Have a look at what I created ....

To begin, I applied Mixed Media paste on a hard board. Before application, I diluted this paste with little bit of water.

2. Then, I used a stencil to form a pattern with the mixed media paste and you can  see how perfectly it worked. Thereafter I  painted the blank spaces, (mostly where I did not do stenciling) with Moda- burgundy paint.

3. I desperately wanted to try out the Crackle Medium, so I decided to use this first only on the part that I had painted. I applied Crackle Medium on that part  after it was a little dry. On top of it, I applied white acrylic paint and soon after,  cracks started to appear.  I was so thrilled with the results that I decided to  create the entire background with it.
For the remaining background I used Slate Mixed media paste and Chalk Paint.

4. Applied Crackle Medium after it was dry and topped it with white acrylic paint.

It looked like this after I was done with these steps....

I used different shades of spray paints (red, blue, brown,black) to coordinate with the colors of  the image at the center.
Next, I just added flowers and embellishments around my focal image and wrapped a twine as you can see in the final image. Also used Mixed Media paste on the edges and on top to create a snowy look!
Have a look

Hope you liked my creation.
Feels nice to hear from all of you, so drop me a line about how you liked it.
Thank you for being with us

1.I used a old bottle after cleaning it, I've done some stencil work in front part n for side I have applied modelling paste n started tapping with finger to give some texture,u can see in pic for the same
2.i have used a piece of corrugated sheet to make roof,cut 3/4",13.5" long strip n roll it to make pillars and pasted a piece of 4/4" card board to increase the width towards the lower end,as u can see in pic it's time to color it,I have used brown,white, yellow n a bit of green for base colors,  I used sponge for coloring

4.used black, dark brown n green acrylic paints again, but this time I have diluted them with water n used them with brush 

After dried I distress it with white gesso n a bit of orange colour
5.i used some small pieces of thin fabric(like cheese cloth) n dipped them in geeso n pasted them on the top of the roof,n some pieces I have hanged like nature snow(shown in pic) I've also sprinkle some sliver guiltier fine dust n,sugar dust to give it snow look,for soft snow look I have used light modelling paste in some areas

6.I added some natural tree wood at the bottom n also created show effect  on them with the same method I mentioned above
