I'm a bit ahead of time and I have limited supplies at the moment, sorry for that.
big numbers PLATESW168
gesso black CH-HSP31383
crackle paste white DMM17
distress paint mustard seed TH-TDD36395
distress paint black soot TH-TDD36302
The base is a wooden star that I primed with black gesso. On one side crackle paste was applied (needs quite some time to dry). I painted it with a layer of mustard seed and when dry I gave it a slight wash from black soot and lots of water. After a short drying time I removed the access.
Finally I glued on wooden numbers that were painted with acrylic paint and crackled, the edges were sponged with staz on.
On the other side I sponged the star through a stencil and adhered big numbers. These were used with archival ink plum and a tool that I'd bought as one for painting wallpapers actually :-)
I hope you are with your loved ones, having a great Christmas time.
Thank you so very mmuch for stopping by and please do so again any other day.
See you next year ...
Hugs, Suzanne xx
