Cracking Up

It's time for a new challenge at A Vintage Journey and this time we are Cracking Up.
Our hostess this month is, the talented, Alison and this is what she said she would like us to do.  Share your crackled projects – whether your crackle is stamped, painted, texture paste or any other kind of crackle. To be a winner or Pinworthy mention your project must be in a vintage; shabby; mixed-media; art journaling; industrial or steampunk style.
I decided to make a canvas this time. I painted it with Distress Paint and then applied Clear Crackle Texture Paste from Prima.  I added lots of ink to the background and then added my Pumpkin and embellishments.
We celebrate Thanksgiving in November here in the US so thought it was the perfect image
for the occasion.  

Hope you will join our challenge this month.
