These are the Shimmerz products I used:
Coloringz Well Blue Me Down, Night Moves
Vibez Jeni B Blue & Blue Jeans
Creameez Sage It Isn't So
Shimmerz Celery & Coffee
I started with a small 5 x 7" canvas, added some crackle paste through a stencil and when that had dried, added some embellishments (Dusty Attic and Calico Craftparts) and some flowers from my stash
I adhered them with gel medium and when everything had dried covered it all with Gesso.
Because I love the way the Shimmerz products sink in between the cracks, I also added some crackle paste to my embellishment at the bottom.
I started with the lightest colour and then built up the layers, drying with my heat gun in between, using a paint brush, my fingers and a baby wipe, until I was happy with the result.
Here's a close up of the crackly bits, I just loves how it looks... :o)
