Stampendous - Happy Birthday Laura Blog Hop

Afternoon all and thanks for stopping by. Today is the Birthday of a good crafty friend, Laura Weed, So a huge Happy Birthday to Laura, Laura works for Stampendous and organises all of us on the DT as well as so many other things, to many to list ;). And as such, Several of the Stampendous DT have decided to do an impromptu Blog Hop, The full list of Participants can be found at the bottom of my post.
Nothing up for grabs this time but plenty of creativity throughout the hop. 

The first stop is 

Products Used:

I have used a pre primed box canvas and applied some Crackle paste to the canvas, Modeling paste was used through the stencils as well as a thin layer on the background around the crackle paste to create different textures. 

Once the pastes were dry I started spraying the canvas with the media misters allowing areas to dry partially and then over spraying with the second colour, This allows the the misters to blend together and creates a mottled almost marbled look

Leave the misters to dry and add a coat of the antiquing cream and remove to leave behind in the cracks and the low areas around the stencil.

The canvas was finished by painting the sides of the canvas black and a coat of the aerosol version of Triple Thick Varnish.

As always a great big thank you for stopping by.
If you are taking part in the hop you should have arrived here from Dee's Blog and after me you finish with Lea.
The full list is posted bellow.
