Where I used yellow, I mixed a bit of studio yellow paint with picket fence crackle. Then I rubbed in brown chalk to bring out the cracks & inked the edges.
I glued a piece of hemp on to the frame,then added a small cluster of flowers…..
Shows some of my distressed stitched layers,using doily’s & burlap in my layers…..
I just love this bike!!!! I used glossy accents on all the raised areas of the bike. Once that dried I applied picket fence crackle,that I had mixed some yellow studio paint in. On the rest of the bike I used watered down gesso,then inked the edges. I also added some pearls….
I cut the swirly vine to fit into my cluster. I used picket fence crackle on the vine,then rubbed in some brown chalk….
I also glued on a piece of hemp on to the oval of the ATC frame. Then made a small flower cluster,using the ferns that I first inked green,then I applied picket fence crackle…
Thank you so much for taking the time to look…..Rachelle
