Distressed Tag by Katy Leitch

The latest challenge theme over on the Challenge Blog is Get Cracking! and I’ve created a distressed tag using the fantastic crackle paint from DecoArt. This is a great crackle product, it’s really sturdy and cracks really well. The secret is to get a nice even coverage that isn’t too thin and to use a darker colour on your base layer which will show through the cracks.

This video shows you how to do create the distressed crackle background used on my tag - hope you enjoy it!


DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics: Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber, Yellow Iron Oxide, Primary Yellow
Embellishments: Keychain, Light Bulb, Mini Brads, Photo Turn
Scrap of Chipboard
