I decided to use a crackled paint technique and see how the Spectrum Noir markers would react to acrylic paint and crackle medium. Follow manufacturer's directions for best results.
This project was created on chipboard, but could also be done on wood -- Watch this video to see how easy it is.
and mounted in a shadowbox frame completely made of paper. The pattern for the frame is available here. I cut the pieces using my electronic cutting machine. Lori's pattern was easy to create and very quick to compltet once all the pieces were cut.
I love the depth and intensity of color you can get with a single marker. And even after all the coloring, the colors were still transparent enough that the crackled effect was still visible. If you're adding several coats of marker color to your project, you'll need to allow a little bit of drying time as the alcohol markers were a bit sticky until they were thoroughly dry.
The metallic stars began as silver colored and they were sprayed with a copper color. The project that was shown on the HSN segment recently (Oct 7, 2014) had a heart added that is not showing in the picture above. If you missed the demonstration of Craftwell's eBrush on HSN, you can revisit it here. There is a video in the listing of pictures on the page.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy a week filled with crafting and creating from the heart.
