A Tag of Many Textures!

Hello!

I am on the Tando Creative blog today as part of 'Texture' week.  One of the many things I love about mixed media is the building and layering of different textures so I decided to decorate one of the technique tags using texture paste along with some grey board pieces and other materials...


First I added some texture paste through the distressed diamonds stencil from Tando Creative, but to add even more texture I tapped the paste with my palette knife to create extra peaks.  Once this was dry I painted the tag and the other grey board pieces with white gesso...


Next to create my colour I used some acrylic inks with water.  To help bring out the texture underneath I rubbed over gold gilding wax and then used black archival ink around the edges and across the texture too...


At this stage I felt that the tag needed some more interest so stamped the distressed diamond background from Bee Crafty using black archival ink...


Finally I built up my focal point using the grey board along with some cambric material, cotton thread and an acetate butterfly from Tim Holtz as well as some faux gems for the butterfly's body.  To create the finishing touch I adhered one of the Tim Holtz chat stickers at the bottom of the cambric...



Here are the products that I used:


I really enjoyed incorporating lots of different textures into my project.  Thank you for looking!

Happy crafting,
