Let the Challenge begin!!!! It is time for the DT reveal of the August Challenge over at

Theme: "Vintage Paris"

Supplies to use: fabric, metal, acrylic paint
Surface: any
Technique: crackle

This challenge was just that "a challenge" for me it sure did push me out of my creative box into WOW!!!
My supplies for Paris was very limited but I did find awesome paper from Graphic 45 and work it up with gel med, paint, glimmer mist, distress inks! Stamped on muslin, added crackle paint to give the canvas a weathered feel and did 5 layers of Utee on the tower, let dry and started to crack it...made a rolled satin black flower-with burned edges, added button and little roses....whoola

close up of the satin flower, cut circles out of fabric, holding it over a candle (very careful-have a bowl of water next to you in case the fabric catches on fire) singed the edges lightly and stack together sew a small stitch in and pull to winkle the flower add a button and you have your own flower.
