Visited Ad This again (view their site at, and saw that they have posted their 3rd challenge. The challenge requires that you use this as inspiration for your LO:

Along with this, you must also use some kind of liquid medium (paint, glimmer mist, etc). I had to try again, and so I grabbed my acrylic paints and came up with this:

Journaling: Like it or not, you’ll always be my baby brother.

Materials used: Papers by K & Co, AAS, AAS gem conchos, chipboard flowers (painted with black acrylic paint, crackle medium, then topped with gold acrylic paint), MM journaling stamp, AL flourishes clear stamps, black embossing powder, Basic Grey Undressed Alpha Chipboards, black and gold acrylic paints.

For the record, this is my fastest LO ever (well, apart from those I made for hour-long challenges during EBs). I basically just played with the acrylic paints (parang tamad na paglalaro lang ng mga pintura). I used the Semco crackle medium paint (purchased from National Bookstore for Php49.75) on the chipboard flowers. It produced lesser cracks compared to the Ranger Crackle Paints (gotta hoard those Ranger crackle paints!!!!), but I think it still achieved that aged look I wanted to portray.

Gotta go for now.
