ALTERED FRAME * a sample for artzdescrap's february inspirational scrapper's take*

do you have those toy package just waiting to be thrown away? if so, then

STOP AND RE-THINK!


get one of those and alter it into something:
here, i used ranger distress crackle paint!!!! i love this product so much! just paint on it.. that easy!

wait for sometime before everything dries up and.....

when it starts to crack, you will love the regularity of its crackling effect!

i then used antiquing solution from rangers and tried to tap just one drop to see the effect.

you can drop several of them depending on your design.
look how the solution would seep into the crack!

you can also brush it over the cracks! see how cool!

these babes are true loves!


and the finished product.....


so don't throw your garbage away. think first... you would never know !

====================
note:
this altered frame sample is for the february tutorial by inspirational scrapper SRI SAMS from singapore/usa at artzdescrap. i just needed to let you see how i came up with this frame and how magnifico the crackle paint is... as easy in one step and the effect is unbelievable... time to get more of that!
