Tam's first Texture Share

Hi everyone, today I'm here to share my first creation for Textures Challenge

Right up my alley!!
I'm a mixed media addict so textures and pastes, paints and stamps appear on just about everything I create.

Recently my daughter attended a prom.  She's just so gorgeous, and I normally prefer 'everyday' pictures but she was wearing the most stunning dress, so I got plenty of shots!

Yep, lady in red!
Red is not a colour I use a lot of and if I do, it's usually in small amounts, but this dress just called for me to go with the red.

I teamed it with neutrals and just let the red shine.

So I began by selecting my background sheet of paper and began by
adding black gesso with a cool stencil from AALL & CREATE.

I knew I wanted my photos to be towards the top of the page so I focused on this area.

 I then grabbed some white cardstock.  I use 'Marshmallow' as it's perfect with water and various mediums -  no need to gesso first.
I then used the 'packaging technique'.  Apply some Dylusions Spray Ink to some plastic (left over packaging is perfect).  Add a spritz of water to get the colour flowing, and then splodge it directly onto your cardstock.

Using a black waterproof ink, stamp your images onto the cardstock.

I then cut out these stamped images.
You could choose to add more colour, but I like them just like this - some quite red, some more white - I love the arty look.


Now that my black gesso had dried, I stamped a few stamps onto my background.

I then cut out some pieces from this sheet (designed by the fabulous Fiona Paltridge).

I ended up not using the heart. Lol.

I then began to add it all together.
I adhered the photos using a few layers of foam tape, as I wanted to be able to tuck various tags, diecuts, gauze etc behind the photos.

This also allowed me to tuck the photos underneath.
I bent the petals upwards to give them more dimension.

I then tucked in a few of my favourite metal flowers.

Finally I added my title and a few word stickers plus the all important journaling!

And that is that.
