If I Only Had A Brain!

Happy first Monday in September and that mean a new Product Focus blog hop at Artistic Outpost. Be sure to visit the rest of the design team as they show off their Storybook Themes, which all stamps in that category will be 20% off through September 9th and no code required! The new "Show Us Your AO Art" has just begun, so come on and ink up some AO rubber!
I decided to make a little burlap canvas hanging and applied DecoArt Crackle Paste dyed with two drops of Mustard Seed reinker through a brick stencil. Once dried, I lightly inked over the cracks with Walnut Stain and wiped off the excess. 
The images and sentiment from the Oz Collage were stamped in Black Archival and inked over with Brushed Corduroy and shaded in Walnut Stain and Black Soot, cut or torn. The lighter areas were inked over with Antique Linen. 
Happy Labor Day to all in the US and have a great day to everyone. Thank you for stopping by today!

The Scarecrow's always a delight, Terry - and I love the setting you've given him. The mustardy crackle is fab - with all the golden glow of ripened corn in the fields he's guarding, and the text panel behind is lovely.
