Dippy Wooden Diptych




Hello all and happy Monday!

I'm here with a sneak peek to tempt you to join me at Destination Inspiration over at A Vintage Journey today.

I've been playing with wood and the dip and smoosh of the wrinkle-free distress technique to create, yes, a "dippy diptych".

Wood, if you stop to think of it, has been man’s best friend in the world. It held him in his cradle, went to war as the gunstock in his hand, was the frame of the bed he came to rejoicing, the log upon his hearth when he was cold, and will make him his last long home. It was the murmuring bough above his childhood play, and the roof over the first house he called his own. It is the page he is reading at this moment; it is the forest where he seeks sanctuary from a stony world.
From American Heartwood by Donald Culross Peattie

I hope you'll be able to hop over and take a look, and I hope you all have a great week.

this destination is right up your street! (is it your choice? If not, just perfect). Love the crackles and splatters.

Amazing ideas on this Alison and it looks achievable now I have seen how you did it. The crackle is really deep and looks stunning.

The words today are so true as well

Love Chrissie xx
