Something Completely Different

This is the best picture out of 12 today! I don't know if the crackle glaze is the problem but this is it!
After a visit to Gez's blog I saw that twinchies was the thing over at SCD and this week with butterflies. i have never done a twinchy before so thought Id give it a go.
Ive used adirondack inks for the colour peach bellini, sunset orange and terracotta. I then stamped the crackle background in the peach and the leaves in terracotta. The butterfly has been stamped onto scrap paper and added then white gel pen dots and highlights before rock candy crackle added to the whole piece. I enjoyed the twinchie experience so will def do it again!

Craft club went well on Sat but i forgot to take pics - sorry but I will share my summer journal with you on Thursday x


  1. Hi Janet. I've just been catching up with everything you've been up to lately. There are some gorgeous things as always. I absolutely adore those grungeflowers, they look amazing. I love grungepaper/board, think it's something to do with the smell, how weird is that!!
    Your butterfly twichie is beautiful too, I don't know how you have the patience to do something so small.
    Looking forward to seeing your journal.

  10. This is such a pretty twinchie - I bet it looks even better in the 'flesh' so to speak, what with the rock candy etc. Lovely colours and the sentiment is sweet.Well done for finally getting the pic - sometimes photos just don't want to be taken, do they?!
