When I visited The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at the Ally Pally earlier this month, I saw a technique that I really wanted to try.
It was demonstrated on the Paper Artsy stall using their Crackle Glaze and Chalk Acrylics. The fact that it looked so easy and quick was a bonus (I am known not to have a lot of patience).

All you do it paint a tag with one of the Paper Artsy paints, let it dry (you can use a heat gun to speed this up). Scrape a thin layer of Crackle Glaze over it all. Dry by heating again. Then paint on your contrasting top colour. It immediately crackles and the bottom colour shows through.
Next I stamped images with Archival Ink and added IndigoBlu Flitterglu and Mega-flake foil.
I love the results and it was super quick.
If you fancy having a go at this or would like to try other techniques have a look at the tutorials on the Paper Artsy Blog. There you will find lots of inspiration if you fancy getting a little messy with your paper.
