I found an old frame at a thrift store and took out the glass.
I painted the frame with Silver Media fluid acrylic
Let the paint dry and then added a thick coat of Media crackle glaze and let that dry.
Look at those gorgeous crackles!
Then with a clean dry rag I rubbed on Media Antiquing cream in raw umber and black, making sure to get it in all of the cracks…. Oh man I love this! Seal with Ultra Matte Varnish.
Cut a piece of 140lb water color paper to 10x8 size and put book pages down with Matte Medium.
Age the background with Media Antiquing cream in Raw Umber.
Paint the letters with Silver Fluid Acrylic.
Once the letters are dry coat with Media Crackle Glaze, let dry and then age with Media Antiquing cream in raw umber and black. Don’t forget to seal with Ultra Matte Varnish.
Cut a heart shape from the 140lb water color paper and paint with American Cranberry Wine let dry and coat with Media Crackle Glaze.
Age the heart with the Raw Umber and black Antiquing Cream.
Glue everything down with E600 onto the background.
Shade with charcoal around the heart, letters and on the sides. Seal with a fixative and then with Ultra Matte Varnish.
Put it in the frame, Display and Enjoy!
