Hello everyone and welcome to day 3 of Let’s Get Trendy Now! 3 Workshop! Our trend today is Textured Layers. I have something fun to show you today, my regular readers would know that I love texture and I have been itching to make faux mixed media kinda cards… I have done that once in the past but this time I added layers of diecuts (same colour, to add more depth).
Eekk! all that gooey, inky mess! I love it! LOL You can use gesso or artist grade texture paste to achieve this look.
Here is a close shot of the gorgeous mess.
The shine comes from clear embossing powder, it gives a very finished look and also adds depth to the colour.
I am one of those people who look around the house for stuff to use as “craft supplies”. You can add added texture by using seeds, crushed dried mint leaves (adds a wonderful smell too) ANYTHING! And don’t worry about the ants, once you heat set everything… they wont be attracted to your almost edible project LOL, well no its not edible! Another way to add texture is by layering die cuts on top of another, in this card I have used four layers of dies.
I have one more thing to share with you… a made another series and it fits perfectly with our trend today!
