Cracking Up!!

...Ok, so maybe I already did crack up...but I am even more cracked up now...cos I used some of that delish Rock Candy Cracklepaint on a little tag I found lurking in the back of a cupboard...this one must have been made a year ago...and it was just sitting there...waiting attention...so I got a bit handy with a paintbrush and applied to Rock Candy to the birdy...using my own little paintbrush made this easier...the brush in the pot is fab for larger areas but for finer bits...own paintbrush time :O))




Adding in some Idea-ology and old lace was just a finishing touch...the inky background was made (if I recall that far back) with a craft sheet, smooshed with Adirondack Felt pads and spritzed with water...




Last night was a total hoot...we went to see Jethro live in Dunstable...blimey, he is hilarious...and at one point I am sure he was pointing at me when he said that he didn't need my sort in there....Grim reckons he was pointing generally, but I knew it was me...even in the dark I can't hide ROFL Anyways...have a good day folks...thanks for looking...and...take it easy!
