Oh boy did I love this one! I love it when as a DT we are given something we can really run with...
So it's the start of another weekly challenge over at The Diva's by Design Challenge Blog and the theme this week is TEXTURE!
I had a little think and decided that we incorporate texture into most of our makes everyday without thinking about it, we add layers, distressed edges, different paper weights, paper types, natural fibres, metal, lace...the list could go on! So I had a little fun with my DT make and here it is....
I went with a fabulous new image from Saturated Canary called Autumn, who is a part of the Seasons Change set she comes with 3 others, one for each season.
I coloured her with my Graph'it Marker Pens in the following tones:
Skin: 4120, 4115, 4155, 4145
Hair: 1250, 1270, 3110
Clothes: 8120, 8270, 8280, 9201, 9203, 9205, 9400, 9402, 9404
The backing papers are from The Stamping Chef and are a part of the totally amazing Don't Stop Mixed Media paper bundle which I think I'll be using more and more! There is so much in there that can be used in so many ways. The papers I have chosen are both mixed media prints adding 'virtual' texture to the eye which seemed to fit this digital age and the theme!
I have added texture where ever I can...embossed paper layer, lace, pearls, flowers, wooden heart, die cuts, resin flower heads, metal charms, fibres and hessian butterflies! All adding texture!
So here are the close up pics (I love adding these so you can all see the little bits and pieces!)
|The insert is made from another of the lush backing papers from the Don't Stop Mixed Media Bundle from The Stamping Chef, I added the text digitally, they are also in the set!|
Well, that's it for this one...I really hope you can come and join us over at the challenge blog and I look forward to seeing you're texture designs :D
