Sew Easy by Paula Tidman

A little sewing themed project from me today. Whilst rummaging around in my crafting drawers, I found a small wooden frame and canvas which I painted in burgundy mat emulsion, then a thin layer of white PVA glue which I left to semi-dry. I then added a top coat of pale pink matt emulsion and voila, it leaves a lovely crackle effect when dry. The same effect can be achieved with the PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints in Very Berry and Vintage Lace and the Fresco Finish Crackle Glaze. I buffed it with Distress Inks in Mahogany and Vintage Photo, finally adding some spray varnish.

The central image the B Line Designs Sewing Cube set, which I stamped, masked and painted with Distress Inks. I added some die cut letters which were painted and distressed with Mahogany and Vintage Photo again. I used a brown marker to add the running stitches, then coated with Glossy Accents, finally adding a wooden dress form with a bow and a vintage pair of scissors embellishment.
