Let’s Enjoy the Season with Little Fun Projects

Hello Friends

Charu here,
I am sure you all must be basking in the spirit of Christmas. Christmas is one of my favorite festivals as it is all about beautiful colors, magic, fun , laughter and celebrations!
So let’s create some magic and fun with lovely products from Itsy Bitsy!

For my first project I chose Little Birdie’s Crackle Medium which was a perfect way to create some frosty and snowy effect on my Christmas themed canvas. Little Birdie’s easy one step application Crackle Medium is great for creating a wonderful aged and crackled effect and the application is super easy too!

It comes in 100ml bottle and in a very reasonable price!

Tips while applying Crackle medium:

Apply a base coat of paint to the project surface, and let dry. The base coat will show through the crackled top coat, so choose colors that contrast nicely. Here I used Snow chalk paint. Apply the Crackle Medium. The crackle glaze usually takes 30 minutes to an hour to dry.

Brush the  top coat onto the piece, loading the brush with enough paint so that each section can be painted with one motion. The crackling begins immediately on the first layer of paint as comes in contact. Avoid over-brushing, which erases the cracks.

1 . I applied black Chalk Paint to the lamp chipboard shape, on that I applied Mixed Media paste to give it a snowy and chalky look!

2. On the canvas I applied Snow chalk paint. Let it dry. After that I applied crackle medium and when dried I painted Snow White chalk paint to give the snowy and frozen effect.

3. The chipboard was ready so I stuck it on the canvas and arranged some flowers and inspirational message. I painted it with acrylic color here and there to give it more Christmas and festive look!

For this project I used some paper doilies, vintage papers , Hearty Melange silicone glue , clear stamps and flowers from the Shop.

Finally I did some fun handmade Christmas tags with Clear stamps from the shop .

I hope you have enjoyed these projects and  you’ll give this form of simple watercolor a try for your next batch of Christmas tags or other projects.

Cheers Charu
