Texturing

My turn to do this weeks tutorial for Tutorial Time at Speedy TV
The tutorial can be found HERE. There are so many new products to use 
with all the altered art. The modeling pastes give lots of great texture.You 
can use joint compound or spackle in place of some of the paste.Some
 of the paste has added fibers, you can also add things like sawdust,
 sand etc. to the joint compound for more texture.
I used plain store bought paste for this project. 

 I have this crazy passion for flowers and I love texture. My mom is an amazingly talented artist and she has always been fascinated with the textures and colors in nature. I think she mentioned
 it so much growing up I received the same fascination by osmosis LOL!!  I
wanted  to do a art piece instead of a card so I cut a piece 
of canvas and started  by using some stencils.
 After I got the texture I wanted I let it dry 
and began adding inks to create the color.. 
I used the Cracked Hello,
 Brick Wall and Just A Note Sets stamped randomly on the canvas. 
For the quote I used the Have Confidence and Today from  the Today, 
Tomorrow and Always Set, the rest I printed.The butterfly is
 from heavy weight Vellum cut with a Spellbinder die 
and jewels added. The  three big flowers are
 made using Spellbinder Rose Creations 
and Bitty Blossoms. 

The little white ones I just cut and rolled up
 some mulberry papers. In person they give a sweet softness
 the camera doesnt capture.The leaves I cut out of  some scrap
 greens and scrunched them. The tiny lavender flowers
 were punched. You can join in the challenge with any type of
project you like as long as you add texture, other than embossing.
My talented teammates have lots of great inspiration for you. 
Im sure all you talented ladies have some wonderful ideas
 so come join our Challenge this week!

  3. Fabulous, Davi! I see you got your mother's talent. Your background is fabulous and so are those beautiful flowers. You are the first person I remember using modeling paste. I loved what you did and went out and bought some. I've enjoyed it so much on mixed media pieces.
