" I'm Tickled "

                        6   x   8  Acrylic, crackle paint and  transfer


This is another one I finished later from that same workshop. Here I applied crackle paint then added 3 different washes over it and wipe it so that the colors would be mostly in the grooves of the crackle than I added the transfers and a little more paint.

Hm...Well, first, I think the warm colors match well with the flowers; it's funny that you titled this "I'm tickled", since nice pinks and light purples are the colors I most associate with the concept of ticling (if that even makes sense). I think some of the color cracks could have been better done; how did you do it, if you don't mind me asking? It's very nice.

Spider G,
It does since the expression is "Tickled pink" as in happy, I just omitted the pink in the title.
The color cracks are not always under your will !
But this was more about goofing around with the products. This is Golden paint crackle paint you apply and let dry and wait for it to crack ! after that you add paint that settles in the grooves and wipe it off then you add anything on top you want.
I hope this helps
