I've gone very simplistic both in terms of colour scheme and actual finished article today :) I know, a bit out of my comfort zone!
I have created a simple, whitewashed beach hut home decor piece, just right to hang on the wall..
I used the lid from an old box as my base, painted it white then covered with a layer of textue crackle paste....
I love the effect this thick kind of crackle paste gives, nice and chunky, lots of ridges as well as the crackle!
I gave the whole thing a swipe with a baby wipe with brown ink dripped onto it, I find this a good way of getting a very thin layer of colour into the cracks. Of course, you can layer up the colour to create a more intense look if you wish!
The beach huts were sponged with white paint, then blue paint, then a little dry brushing with brown paint...
Sponging rather than actually painting with a brush will give a thinner layer, so the detail can still be seen. I finished off with a few 3D balls in differing sizes!
Not sure this pale and interesting look is really me... back to colour from now on :)
