Hello Crafty Peeps! Did you know that there is a challenge blog called A Vintage Journey that is catered to all things Tim Holtz? I am so honored that they asked me to be a Guest Designer over there today. The theme of the new challenge is "Texture", and they want to know how Tim inspires you to add texture to the project you enter in the challenge, and we all know there are a ton of different ways. Doesn't that sound so cool? I hope you enter, and I hope to inspire you here today with this Flying Pig on a 9x11 inch birch wood panel, that has another of my numbered creatures! To see the peacock or butterfly that I've made previously, click on the links.
|I could go on and on about Tim inspires me to create texture, but on this particular project I've choosen only a few. ;0)|
|Glossy Accents adds depth as well as shine. I've used it on the numbers on the pig, and on the waves of wind throughout.|
|Even a Stabilo Pen can add texture to Chit Chat stickers.|
|More texture is noticed from the wood grain itself, as well as stamped painted images on the background of the panel.|
|Wendy Vecchi's Embossing Paste and Tim's Layering Stencils are a match made in craft land. I love the crackled texture on the sun's rays.|
|Tim's Sizzix Texture Fades add awesome texture to his Sizzix Dies, like on the wings of the pig.|
Thanks so much to Brenda Brown and all the team for having me at A Vintage Journey! I appreciate it so very much! AND, I hope you all join in on the fun!!!I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
