Times have changed and many of us have found our styles have too.

It's time again

For another shabby tutorial.

This month Vibeke is sharing with us just how she altered the title letters on her sample for this months challenge.


Here is what you will need to do.

Gather up
some chipboard letters. Different colors and sizes then
paint them with white paint.

Cover with glossy accents.


And then crackle paint.

When dry spray with glimmer mist



Before the mist dries wiped some of it off.
You can see that the mist got down in the crackle paint.


More glossy accents to make them good looking.


And voila: My letters are finished - and ready to decorate :)


Don't forget to pop in and check out our latest challenge and sponsor.
