Paint Effects at the Craft Barn

 Hi my crafty friends, Happy Saturday to you and thankyou for stopping by.

Paint effects, that's what we have been concentrating on over at the Craft Barn Blog, lots of painted items for you to peruse this week and here is my effort....


This scrapbook tin I painted, crackled, masked and sprayed, I had a lovely messy time. Chaps don't seem to want stuff but sometimes they collect tickets or score cards, you know the stuff I mean and I thought this could come in handy for the messy bits of paper usually left out and pushed around until you get fed up with seeing them. I do find crafting for men a real challenge, LOL Gay x

I used
Fresco Chalk finish paints,
Stamps by Oxford Impressions, London Telegraph
Scrapbook Tin by Woodware.
