Eclectics Challenge - D

Well well well

The time has really flown by and is challenge time again over at Eclectic Ellapu and this time it is hosted by Dawn.  The theme is 

For this challenge I used a cheap black plastic frame as my weapon of choice.  It cost me £1 so it broke the bank lol.  

I used white gesso to start with and then textured medium.  I then used black acrylic and once dried (as you do between every single layer lol) I applied some crackle medium.  I used gesso over top and watched it crackle.  I love that part of the process.  

I then searched threw my stamps and decided to use the text from my masquerade set.  I just stamped randomly over the frame and all edges.  After I had completed it I then decided to stamp out the images and placed them inside the frame as you would photographs.  These images are so freaky I just love them.  (You can see one of them is crooked lol)

 Once again I forgot to take the before pic but at least you can see the after lol.

I enjoyed putting this project together and I hope you like it also.

Bye for now and please drop by Eclectic Ellapu to join in the fun.... look forward to seeing you there.  You have to be innit to winnit!
