While traditionally Sunday is the day of rest, for many crafters it’s a day to MAKE. I was doing just that up in my studio this afternoon when I decided to try some crackling techniques, and I remembered I’d heard about one that uses Elmer’s glue instead of a fancy medium. After a quick Google search, I found a great video on YouTube from dsimthdesign that had a nice time-lapse tutorial with captions that demonstrated the technique well. It also, then, goes on to show how you can use that crackled background as a basis for art journaling. LOVE that.
So I’m sharing. It has music, so if it bugs you, hit “mute.” Enjoy the next four minutes of art-y goodness!
Happy National Craft Month!
