Snap, Crackle, Croc!5:00 AM
Today's pattern on pattern design is actually based on a dress I spotted on designer Christian Siriano's instagram. Yes, I totally love him. I do things based on his designs ALL the time. lol...this was actually dead easy to do too and it came out rather cool looking. I will preface by saying I'd have preferred to use a brown croc effect but when I got going I realized that I actually don't have one. All I have is black and maroon. I debated for a bit because black might have gone a little better but I decided in the end to use the red since it's a little warmer. So it's basically a coat of white, a coat of croc effect, top coat and then a coat of crackle. The top coat is important because otherwise the crackle tends to want to crack on the lines of the croc which ruins the effect. Also while I was doing this I forgot how long it takes the croc effect to start working and just as I was at peak panic and ready to start taking it off it finally started wrinkling at the edges! Anyhoo...here's the Siriano dress:
*swoon* isn't it gorgeous? Check out the other girls art below!
