Reverse Decoupage & Mixed Media Altered Bottle

I am here with an interesting decoupage project today, which is also my DT inspiration for the LETZ CRAFT BLOG.

I love altering bottles with decoupage & hoard a lot of them in different shapes & sizes, one such flat bottle was perfect for reverse decoupage - a technique in which the tissue is glued to the back of the glass & the front is left clear.

I textured the backside (where the tissue is adhered) with Plaid FolkArt Painted Finishes Kit - Concrete (this product is currently out of stock, you can preorder here)

I played around with embellishments from my stash & textured them all with the concrete textured finish. Sprayed the layout with Lindys Stamp Gang Startburst - Black Orchid Silver. Added some Decoart Crackle paste on the sides. Once dry I highlighted all the textures with Finnabair Metallique wax - Red amber & Rose gold.
Here are some close ups of the Mixed Media -

Do you see the crackle effect here -
