Here are some closeups of detail:
For the red used on the chipboard ,I  used my wall paint,for the red,plus I applied a coat of clear crackle varnish.
I used LuminArt' (Jasper Red)H20 over the crackle on the chipboard. The red was still a bit to bright,so I toned with wintermist gray H20,once the red had dried. I used this on all the chipboard in these LO's....I also inked the edges of the chipboard using a ink pad..I used distressed brushed pewter stain,paint & crackle on the rest of the chipboard.







This next LO,is of my youngest son Tandri,he loves to golf...

I used the Walking in the Forrest Collection from Maja Design

Here are some close ups of detail....
I cut the birds off the wire,to use on the bird cages & in the wild flowers. I painted them denim,then applied a coat of crackle. I did the same treatment to the lavender,& the bottom part of the words. While the crackle was still wet,I sprinkled on some seed beads onto the lavender.
I painted all the stems,vine frames,& bird houses, using both gingernut & bissque,then applied a coat of crackle. I altered raisin & cranberry paint on the berries of the wild flowers,then applied crackle. I inked all the edges of all the chipboard once the crackle dried,using a charcoal ink pad...

I did some stencil work,mixing the bisque paint into the texture paste...
I took the flower centers out of the DA smoky blue flowers,then replaced them with the purple ones...
Added some extra blue pearls to the wild flowers...


Here is my next LO,a LO I did about 3 years ago. I pulled lots of stuff off & added lots of new DA chipboard, to go with the colors in the mood board
