Hi! I am Sue Kithcart from Upstate N.Y. in the USA! So this months theme is perfect for me!
July's theme is Americana or red/white and blue which is perfect for me as I decorate my patio in Americana theme! I also love birdhouses so I choose to altered a birdhouse for my project!
The first thing I did was to coat the entire birdhouse in white paint. The roof was painted in white due to
the fact that I am crackling the roof in a two color crackle, but I also painted the house part so if any of the paper did not cover totally I would have a white base.
Once the crackle medium is totally dry, I then took my midnight blue paint and painted the entire roof, right over the crackle medium. The biggest mistake people make with crackle medium is painting the top coat of paint too thin!!! Use plenty of paint! It will look almost gunky at first!
