I know I have been here already today with a DT post but I have another DT make for you as
Mixed Media World Launch their August challenge and our theme is
So this month we need to see you using all your different media's and materials to create a fabulous textured piece.
There is, as usual, some fabulous inspiration from my team mates and you should really pop over and take a look.
For my Gorgeous Textures piece I have made a textured heart
I have started with a large MDF heart which I covered in gesso. I then added, in this order, texture paste, tissue crinkled up so it looks like veins and applied with matt gel mediumb strips of bandage again applied with gel medium, more tissue, then another layer of gesso, crackle paste and when that was all thoroughly dried I added water and sprinkled on grey Brusho and let those crystals do their magic, I love how the brusho has run into the cracks of the crackle paste. when I was happy with this effect I dried with a heat tool. I then added London Bus fresco paint to some of the raised area's of my project.
I didn't want to cover up too much of the background so added 2 die cut hearts cut from old music paper, these were sandwiched with more bandaged fibres which were slightly coloured with the brusho grey. They were then roughly stitched together. I outlined the largest heart with black cotton to give the heart some definition leaving trailing threads. Final touches were a punched heart from painted cardstock with the stapled kiss and some fine red fibre and a Donna Downey stamped sentiment which I then stitched around and cut out.
We would love it if you came and joined in with us this month and share your own gorgeously textured makes, you can see all the makes of the DT HERE for some great inspiration.
