A little texture never hurt anyone…

well actually……. telling people about it did….
because it was when i was showing the Alain, the owner of Ranger these projects when i fell backwards and broke my wrist. But the textures on both frames were created using Tim Holtz products and a few little things learnt at Ranger Uni this year.
These two pieces were on display at the current CHA show.  Both were  creating using the new “Timeless” Paper collections.
Texture created using Hero Arts - Woodgrain stamp.
Embossed with clear embossing powder and then frame
stained with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Stain. - Cool Effect hey!!!
And  the “Timeless” cameo.
Frame given an antiqued look but staining the frame with
Tim Holtz Walnut distress stain and loaded on top of this
a generous coat or two of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.
As drying, spray on Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist or 
Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Spray and let pool in random areas.

Two of my favourites textures that are both simple and easy but create great effects.
