That sum me up pretty well to be fair, but on this occasion I am referring to crackle effect! This is fun but not for the more impatient crafters, so do as I do, start it just before bed so you leave it over night...that stops you impatiently trying stuff too early! This works on card and wood so give it a go, you need 2 colours of acrylic paint and good old PVA glue! Choose your base colour and paint a coat of this. Let this coat dry completely, then slap on a coat of PVA glue, and straight on top of that paint your second colour of paint. Keep your strokes in one direction.
Leave to dry and crackle!! It is so cool you will be tempted to watch paint dry!! Once dry you can stamp and colour on the top. Simple but soo much fun!!
