Crackling Drawer Front

Another week, another page in the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge from StudioL3. I'm having so much fun doing these drawer fronts and knew exactly what I wanted to do for this week's Distress Crackle technique on page 42. This will be my Tim Holtz hardware drawer, so it's decorated with lots of Tim Holtz stuff. I used Old Paper and Pine Needles distress crackle and Forest Moss ink, also some copper paint. The grunge board ornament was one I did in a TH class I took a couple of years ago. And, of course, another old earring for the drawer pull. 4 down and 8 to go!!
Have a great week everyone!!!

  6. You have just inspired me to do something with an Ikea small 6 drawer container. This is a fabulous idea. Never in a million years would I have thought to decorate it so lovely as you have yours. Thanks for the inspiration! Putting on my craft to do list.

  7. Rachelle, I actually jumped up and down in my chair when I saw this-- yes, it's THAT COOL! The Distress Crackle looks awesome on the background, and wow, did you ever go all out on the great embellishments! That little bulb in the upper right corner is particularly eye-catching, but really, the entire piece is wonderful. You should be SO proud of yourself for the amazing work you're doing on this little cabinet. ♥
