August 123 Challenge

123 has a new challenge this month, the colour GREEN, the word WATCH or WATCHING and need to use TEXTURE PASTE.

The first 2 easy for me, but I have never used texture paste before. So with a deep breathe I went and got some. Then thought 'now what???' So I went for the easy option. I used a template (its a 6x6 one....soooooo buying the 12x12), mixed some lime paint into the paste and spread on. Once dried I lightly paint some black paint with crackle paint. When that was dried I put heavier crackle paint on. Some places where blacker then others so not sure about the over all look but as a first try, methink not bad :)

I have also used Charm Creations mini runner, Echo park paper, October Afternoons paper (cut out butterflies) and letters, A2Z chipboard, embossing powder, prima ink and Bella pearls 

Go HERE and have a try at the challenge yourself

Thanks for looking

  1. 'Not bad' is an understatement, the bricks look fantastic, I love them and I've been trying to get that template for ages now. Thanks for leaving me such a lovely comment and I think my template was a Crafters Workshop brand.

  2. Love the brick effect and the gorgeous photo. Actually I adore that photo - that vintage, slightly grungy effect is perfect!
