 Here's what you can win from Memory maze.
The winner will be announced at the memory Maze blog on 26th May.

Our theme for this blog hop is technique, each of our wonderful design team members will show you how to decorate those chipboard pieces or create new chipboard pieces.
My technique is crackling with a shaker box.
Here's my layout.
If you look at the light globe chipboard you will see there are beads inside it.
Here is the instructions
1. Using light globe from Memory Maze paint yellow then allow to dry.
2.Paint over the globe with JO SONJA'S DECOR CRACKLE
3. Wait a few moments, but while crackle mix is still tacky,add a layer of white paint.
4.Dry overnight.
5.Turn over light globe to back and adhere acetate sheet to back of globe.(I used one from stamps I had)
6. Cut away residue acetate around edge of globe shape.
7. Using magic mount, cut strips and put around circumference of back of globe,leave no gaps.
8.Put beads in centre on top of acetate.
9.Find a suitable paper or card to cover the back of your globe. I've used hand made embossed paper also from Memory maze.
10. Remove top yellow paper from your magic mount then carefully place this paper over your shaker box. Ensure all pieces are stuck. I run my thumb around to be doubly sure.
11.Flip over the globe to the front. Visually check the placement of backing paper. Trim away excess paper around globe shape.
 12. Your globe is ready to put on your layout.
