Home is where the heart is


I have been playing with my Zig Woodcraft pens after admiring Carol's plaques when I went to see her lovely stall last week. I loved the effect she does on her plaques and tried it out on these magnets. I think the paint pens dry to quickly to achieve the crackle effect but I like the way the colours blend and I added some crackle accents to get the crackle. I left the bottom one solid. To get the effect on the top two I painted one coat, then when it was dry added streaks of PVA glue, let that almost dry and then painted the other colour on top. I found the Kaisercraft letters in my scrapbook stash and added a wooden house to one and enamel hearts to the other two.
