Texture

I love texture, but generally I find I don't usually add much to my journal pages, except by using paint, but an article in this month's Craft Stamper by Jaine Drake inspired me to have a go.

This is my first page. I quite like it but it wasn't what I set out to achieve. I went a bit overboard with the tissue paper stamping! You can, however, see the texture.


This is my second attempt, and is much more the look I had in mind.


Here's a close up of some of the texture I created by adding Artist Spackle through a stencil and adding cardboard shapes.

Brilliant pages with wonderful techniques. The texture looks fabulous! I have the new Craft Stamper but haven't got to that project yet. You should send a piccie into CS, they will be very impressed xx
