A new challenge over at Tellen's Place. This week it's TEXTURE we want to see on your new projects. This can take many forms of course and the other Divas have been busy creating for your inspiration. Please go look at their blogs and leave some love.
My project is a card I made for our very own Marcus' birthday. He shares this with me so I could hardly forget him.
The main texture here is supplied by the "paper" I made. As you can, hopefully, see it's all lumps and bumps. It was made using gesso, foil, kitchen roll and paint with some rub-on metallic paste to highlight further. The process was shown in the Smeared and Smudged forum a couple of months ago and I had a lot of fun with it. The panels cut as seen and mounted onto a bright blue, twisted easel base. gold peel offs to neaten.
The image is of course from Tellen's Place and was coloured using a mixture of paints. The shape being a LOTV template with some more of the metallic rub on smudged round the outside and an offset frame cut from matt gold card using the same templete. This was attached to the base using some little square brads. The "stay" being buttons attached with embroidery silk.
