Challenge #141 - Texture

Amanda here with this week's challenge! I'd like you to use something to give your project some texture! I chose to wrap some twine around some of my photos. I also cut out some flowers on my Cricut and use pop dots to give them some dimension.

Here are a stamp with some gesso and jute to add the texture. I did some spritzing with glimmer mists to give some color. 

Here is my take on the challenge. I pulled out my cuttlebug and a circle embossing folder to create a textured base for my image that I colored with my copics.  I also love to use rhinestones to create texture and a little pop. In addition, I also selected a background paper with a wood grain to it to create a visual illusion of texture.

I was at a crop recently where we got to try out some of the new Gelatos and using them with gesso and modelling paste.  A very fun technique that makes great use of my stencils that I seem to have a lot of.  As you can see, there is texture to be had using these, and they are such fun!  We also cut out some layered butterflies with the sizzix.

I am a little late to the party this week.  On this layout I used a piece of twine and some mesh behind the photo of my daughter at the beach.  I also used brads and some epoxy buttons to provide more dimension.
