Textures 2

Just a very simple tag from me today, but another in my texture collection.
This tag shows two different texture techniques. I began by using DIs and sprinkling with water to get the background. P1080124 copy

P1080126 copyP1080125 copyI stamped in the bottom right corner using Claudine Hellmuth’s multi-medium matte and the leaf shape using gesso mixed with fired brick re-inker.  

I also edged the card using the same gesso and colour. When dry I added more DI to get the multi-medium stamped area to show up and then added the embellishments and tie.    The flower and little butterfly are made from fabrics.

Colours used – stormy sky, victorian velvet, faded jeans.

The sentiment is from Elusive Images and the music paper is a free download. Really this should be embellished more, but I didn’t want to hide the textures and showing you that you can stamp with various mediums to create them.

I am getting excited as the week progresses as I will be away the weekend. Ken and I are off with some friends on Friday to the Isle of Wight festival. This is our third year of going. BUT WE DON’T CAMP – I know you’ll say you’re taking the easy way of doing it, but bed and breakfast is so much nicer. The buses run all night so there are no transport problems and we can all have a drink.

Want to know who’s on? Well I want to see Kings Of Leon and they will be headlining Friday night. Also Friday I hope to see Imelda May and Eliza Doolittle plus Kaiser Chiefs and the Courteeners. Saturday – Foo Fighters headline the main stage also there are Pulp, Seasick Steve and Mike and the Mechanics. Then Sunday Kasabian, Beady Eye, Jeff Beck and the Script. There are lots of other acts on, but these are the ones I shall head for.

I hope you are having a good week and have fab things to look forward to at the weekend.
