Time for another challenge at A Vintage Journey (how quickly the weeks go by!). It is the turn of our very creative Jenny of Pushing the Right Buttons and she has challenged us to:
Get Some Texture
Tim has shown us so many techniques for getting texture
into our projects over the years.
Use one (or more) of these on your piece - just
remember to tell us which one's you have chosen!
Here are some pictures and details for you!
There are loads of wonderful products and techniques out there for creating texture and I decided to take a kraft board hanging and cover it with left over die cuts and small pieces of netting and scrim.
Once these were stuck down I used Grunge Paste and the Harlequin Stencil to create more texture over the top.
A layer of gesso came next to unify it all and then I blended Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks here and there - just a little at a time and I kept watering it down to keep it light.
Finally I added some torn pieces of Tissue Wrap.
I decided to keep all my embellishments white and used a pallete knife to layer Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint on a Spring Greenery die cut. (This was before it dried!)
The flowers were made using white card stock and the Tattered Florals die in my usual scrunched way and I added those wonderful stamens for the centres.
And so there you have it a Journey into Texture!
Have fun and thank you for visiting today.
