Crackle week with Irit: Life is wonderful

 Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here and this is my altered canvas made with a lot of Tando stencils only  and a whole jar of DecoArt  one step crackle medium.
First I made all  images with texture paste and the following Tando stencils:
Giovanna - Profile

Bird and branch

Bird and Branch Mask
Have you say
A Skinner Stencil/Mask - Have Your Say

Harlequin Mask

Long flourish
Mask - Long Flourish

Then all piece was heavy painted and misted using DecoArt  paints and self made mists.
I painted inside the images with acrylics and let it dry for a very long time.
The dry canvas was covered with a  heavy layer of crackle medium and then went to " sleep"  over night. The crackles were easy shown in the morning, but I added another mists and paints layer to make it really significant.
One stamped over tissue sentiment was glued over the piece and I really lover this crackled result.
Hope you like it too.
