Texture, Texture, Texture

Over at Out of a Hat Creations this week they are asking to see 3 types of textures in our creations.  I ran the tag through an M-bossibilities circles folder and coloured with purple pan pastels.  I die cut the umbrella man from chipboard and painted him black. For the final texture I cut a piece of honeycomb paper to create the canopy of the umbrella.  I stamped the words, cut them out and coloured them with a blue pan pastel.

So, just to clarify, my three textures are:
  • embossed background
  • chipboard
  • honeycomb paper

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
