A Texture Challenge...


At last something I can share! It is time to reveal our Scrapping Outback August 13 Texture Challenge:

"Use chipboard, texture, layers and masking on your project, it can be a layout, a card or OTP"
All details can be found here.

Here is my take on the challenge:

"Priceless Love"

I used some Pion Papers :)
These are all the textures I used:
- Modelling Paste, Gesso, Croco Crackle Paint in white
- Gauze, Lace, Felt, Leather, Jute, Grossgrain Ribbon
- Sequins, wooden buttons, plastic buttons, wooden reel, rhinestones.
- Flower vine, silk flowers and paper flowers.

Here is how I started the layering on my layout:

I started by cutting out one large frame out of Pion Paper and adhering it over my background layer.
I then took Prima mask and applied Modeling Paste over it forming a large oval frame on right hand side, while still wet I pushed in pieces of torn gauze all around. The modeling paste acts as cement! No need for glue :)

A little closie of the "required" masking element:
