I started by painting a page with Jade Fresco, then applied the paste with a palette knife through a stencil (Lin Brown for Paperartsy)
Sarah Anderson's blog - adding layer on layer, and decided to rescue this page. Out came one of my earliest stencils I ever bought, and the Buff Fresco...
Added matt glaze to the hearts (Decoart) at this stage, not sure what I was thinking would happen next...
Took some of the Finnabair sentiments from the same two sets, on white card and glued them to the page.
close up of the crackle... it buckled a bit but has dried out even further today and is much flatter now.
Filled the gaps round the flowers with the honeycomb/circles from JoFY32 in Watering Can archival - was still a bit too prominent, so dabbed a bit more Buff over the top.
Thanks for looking.
