I primed all of the chipboard with clear gesso, then applied clear crackle on to some of the pieces. Once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with Shimmerz Inklings chocolate & diamonds for the brown used, & giddy about green for the green used.

I love working with  Maja Design Paper, it is the softest paper I have ever worked with, so it distresses beautifully. Being a paper layer, I find the Collections easy to work with, plus you can combine Collections, as they also blend beautifully…. This corner shows distressed, hand stitched, paper layers using corrugated paper in the layers…

c9d4d4b97c0a491a9518cf51559736fa

I primed the TH icicle, old wooden fence & chicken wire with clear gesso, the rest of the chipboard was primed with white gesso. I then painted all the chipboard,& the TH icicle, except for the chicken wire with clear crackle paint. Once the crackle dried I painted the white pieces with LuminArt-Heavenly White H20, & for the brown I used Shimmerz -Chocolate & Diamonds…
