Here is one more layout from the Valentine's picturesa I took several weeks ago. I had a Pink Paislee "Do you love me?" die cut and I thought it really matched this picture. Bailey's face is just classic.
The chipboard heart frames came in my Swirlydoos kit. The larger frame is covered with Antique Linen crackle paint and then inked. The first try did not come out looking very good, but I flipped it over and and tried again. I put on a much thicker layer on the second try and it took forever to dry but it looked even and made nice big cracks. I put Rock Candy crackle paint on the thinner frame and it came out looking pretty patchy too, but I inked over it until it blended together. I like the look I ended up with although it took a lot of trial and error to get there. I think what I got out of this experience was to crackle small areas because it's a lot easier to get uniform coverage.
