Challenged By Jo Myhill (3)

Jo showed this canvas full of yummy textures on the Paper Artsy blog this week and I just had to have a go! I used the same method (bar mishaps) but substituted some of the "ingredients".

I had to mix my own elephant paint which I think is a lot darker than the original Fresco, and didn't apply the paste thickly enough so the gold ink (instead of liquid leaf) has spread a lot more. I used Frantage Aged Rose embossing powder on both the texture paste and the heart (the swirl is a freebie from a magazine, as it turns out I have no flourish from PA- how come?).
I used stamps from ESN07 to print my own book text, as well as to stamp the heart background.

My texture paste is a mix of my "elephant" paint, texture paste and .... pink glitter!!! Not that you can see it but at least it's a way of using it.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing with that one, and, although it didn't turn out as intended, I am still pleased with the result.

I am also entering the Pan Pastel UK challenge - Mix it up

Thanks for coming by,

  6. I really like this, the texture is yummy, and that heart is gorgeous, love the layers of text and swirls.

  7. Pour être sincère je ne suis pas sure d'aimer, mais ça mériterait sans doute d'être vu de plus près pour juger...en tout cas tu as fait un travail techniquement trè intéressant j'en suis sure, ça se voit ! Bises, Corinne
