Hi everyone,

today a new project from the experimental laboratory ;-) it was my first try with a chalky finish paint. 
What should I say I was thrilled about the matte look in vintage style. I used an old wood hanger, because Upcycling is my second name ;-) .
 Just get started and try out :-)


+ distress inks Walnut stain , Faded Jeans
+ chipboards from Creative embellishments
+ Staz on Spiced Chat
+ Viva Decor stamp ''At the seaside''

How I made this:

1. undercoating with Fluid Acrylics Blue green light + Cobalt Teal
2. painted on upper edge with Titanium White
3. after drying, primer with chalky finish Timeless
4. apply crackle glaze -results based on thickness of application
5. after drying use a stencil and stamp
7. use spray paints - here Distress Ink + water + mini Mister
8. finally glue on chipboards

 with my first nautical knot ;-)

             crackle glaze -results based on thickness of application
 use brushes or a palette knife

Creative Embellishments - use wood, inspire by blue heaven
Happy crafting
