Little Lady

This is a project I worked on this last weekend. It is hot outdoors and when it is, you stay in and do other things. This was my "other thing." I got the idea from the Paper Whimsy website under the "Inspire" tab. They have a lot of cute projects featured there as well as lots of goodies to purchase. The flower at the bottom is from Paper Whimsy.

Anyway, this is actually a 6"x6" canvas. You do the project on the back of the canvas. The first one I tried, I didn't have much luck with the crackle paint. But, this time I painted the wood with black and then applied gobs of the crackle paint. It took a while to dry. Then I used alcohol ink diluted with blending solution to tone down the color of the paint. Worked great!
