I used the Walking in the Forest Collection from Maja Design

Other products used:Prima sunset-sunrise mini roses bronze,pearls,seed beads,micro beads,ribbon,tulle,Viva modeling cream (champagne),Ranger Perfect Pearls Mists Bronze
Here are some close ups of detail…
I used lots of crackle on this project,this is sort of my way of altered art….
The photo is of my BF’s Daughter in Law,she is so Beautiful!!!

I first glued down the window,onto the paper I was working with using crackle as the glue….
I then applied a coat of the Viva modeling cream on to the window & once that dried I applied crackle on to the outside edges of the window. I then inked the edges brown using a ink pad & rubbed in some brown chalk to bring out the cracks….
Once the crackle dried on the window part,I applied perfect pearls mist bronze using a brush.
On the Vintage frame I used both DA,Bisque(on the out side) & Gingernut (on the inside),then I applied crackle over the Gingernut. Once that dried I applied the bronze PP,inked the edges,then rubbed on some Viva MC champane….
On the bird cage & fountain I used Viva MC & bronze PP,then I applied a coat of crackle…
On the vines I used DA forest on the leaves,once that dried I rubbed on some Viva MC,then crackle & once the crackle dried I applied the bronze PP.For the vine part I used spectrum noir pen #EB7,then applied bronze PP & rubbed on some Viva MC…..
I got my inspiration to make a window box from this Beautiful Dusty Attic piece:
Window Flower Box
Window Flower Box (DA0987)
I built it out of chipboard,then decorated it by using the name plate,the title & that beautiful Ivy vine,love,love that vine, I used them all up,so I need to order some more!!! 
I used Gingernut on the hearts,then crackle,then bronze PP….
I love how this looks on the stand….Thank you so much for taking the time to look….Rachelle
