Creative Chemistry Day3 (1)

Today I watched the fab CC 102 tutorials where Tim shows how to create a faux cracked glass effect and a lot more techniques which were - as usual - as surprising as innovative.

The cracked glass is still in preparation (due to some drying time), but the "Braiered Stains Technique" produced immediate results - honestly I had to do several of them until I mastered it. Sometimes I picked too much colour with my brayer, sometimes too little.

I really love the effect of the "brayered traces" of colour against the plain white of the background - so I only blended the edges, but did no further blending with distress inks after the brayering.



My favourite tag of today so far:



Hugs and happy crafting,
