Its all about Texture over at Try it on Tuesdays this week.
A real good excuse, as if I needed one to get inky and messy. I decided to alter a small canvas, the original surface had definitely seen better days.
The surface was given a few coats of acrylic paint mainly shades of blue with a white dauber splodged here and there. I used a selection of stamps to add interest at this stage.
Next came the Chevron mask, and grunge paste, for some base texture. This was coloured with a pale mica powder when still damp. A bit hard to make out in the photo
The flower shape was stamped with a Paper Artsy stamp and coloured with distress ink, Spiced Marmalade and Forest Moss .
The quote is from a Stampers Anonymous set.
Just to finish off I sprinkled some Stampendous embossing power around some of the edges and corners, adding some silvery flakes before heating.
Did you notice that the flower seems to be growing out of a handbag, don't we women keep some strange things in ours. I recently found some rusty screws in the bottom of mine, obviously picked up when I was out and about.
Thank you for stopping by, I do always appreciate your comments.
