Kaisercraft Paperartsy style
DDs got me the Kaisercraft desk organiser for mother's day last week, so I've been putting it together today using my PaperArtsy Thorndon Hall papers
The sheet music isn't Thorndon Hall, it's something random from my stash, and the piece just above the three drawers isn't covered in paper. That has a coat of the new Fresco Finish in London Midnight, then a thin layer of the crackle glaze followed by a coat of Vintage Lace. It's magic! It's so simple, no worrying about how long to leave between coats or anything, just let the crackle dry (or dry it with a heat gun) then put on the top coat and the crackles appear. Here's a close up, the crackles really are amazing
I stamped a bird from each of the three new PaperArtsy stamp plates I bought yesterday straight on top with black archival. It takes the image like a dream.
Now I just have to get organised enough to put stuff in the organiser!
