Hello everyone! Lisa back to share a prject with you.

Today I am sharing a Christmas home decor piece I created using the Believe birch wood word from Creative Embellishments. This was the first time I used crackle paste and I love the results I got with it!

I added Gesso to the wood piece. Then I added red acrylic paint. Then I added the crackle paste and let dry a few days. I later learned I would not have had to do either one of these because I was using crackle paste that was white opaque. Live and learn, lol! When it was dry, I painted it red with acrylic paint that I watered down a bit. Here’s my piece:

I colored the Santa’s Sleigh and Holly and Berry Set with acrylic paints and let them dry. Then I added a thin layer of crackle paste. It didn’t crackle but I loved the snowy result I got:

Finally, I added white paint and gold mist spatters:

I love how this piece came out and will be displaying it in my house this holiday season.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
