WHICH report - crackling

No that's not pork crackling - though wouldnt that be nice!

This week at The Craft Barn I thought I'd try out a few different ways of achieving a crackle finish on a scrapbook layout, and let you decide which you like. Here's the resulting page. Love these papers - love the place, Crosby Beach with Anthony Gormley's installation. Pure magic!

Dreamweaver embossing paste: Crackle
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints: Chocolate pudding and Butternut
Distress Stains: Broken china and Vintage photo
Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz: Stuff to say
Andy Skinner acrylic stamps: Antiques
7 Dots Studio - Wonderland: Mad tea party and Quadrille

The which report is over on The Craft Barn blog and is proving very popular. It's interesting to see different crackle medium compared all in one place. Hop over there and take a look - see what you think!

Sorry it's been such a short post today, my computer has been so slow it's been timing out before the sentence is written - computers, dont you just love em?

There have been a few nasty virus out there trawling the ether for vulnerable hardware so do be careful not to click on anything you dont recognise.

Have a good weekend
Hope the sun shines your way

x Michelle
