Heart Tag with Texture Paste by Hannah Oxberry

It's Texture Paste week here on the Tando Creative blog! I love to use texture pastes within my mixed media work, the ways it can be applied - along with the looks you can create, are so varied.

For today's project, I thought I would share this tag where I have incorporated a few different texture techniques.

The base of the tag is made up of a few different layers; paints and washes form the backdrop. Stamped images add detail and aid the theme, while papers add texture and further emphasise the theme. I have also coloured modeling paste with paints and drawn this through a stencil of the word "Paris".

For the central heart motif, I roughly applied texture paste across the surface using a palette knife. By using washes, followed by dry brushing - I can really highlight and draw out the texture created by the paste.

I applied this same technique to the number 2, as well as dry brushing the whole of the tag to add a vintage feel.
