Texture was the theme of my journal which is currently in Northern California. This super large flash card was found in my stash of "one day" ephemera. I love finding goodies that I can work into my art. TOUCH seemed like the perfect word to describe the textured journal I wished for. I filled in the letters with Papier Glitter which dried to a clear and glossy elevated finish. Very touchable; good textured element.
This is from a page in my Texture Journal. I included a tag from a workshop I gave a couple years ago that had loads of texture with journaling on the back. I made a pocket for it to sit in.
I created removable pages to encourage members to lay it on and not worry.
Even my tags can't escape the way of layers! This is one sample of two Alice in Wonderland accordion tags that we'll be making at Stampin' From the Heart in Los Angeles on March 26th beginning at 4:30 until 8:00. I'll supply the tags, paint, stamps, ink and colored pencils. All you need to bring is a small pair of sharp scissors. The samples are in the shop. Drop by to check it out.
So far I haven't asked myself "What were you thinking?!" so I must still be in the sane mode. That may change as I hurry to make the mail off deadline in the journal round robin or as I sit in my art space doing all nighters trying to get all my make-it-take-it kits together. Oh yeah, I forgot about the other two workshops that are one week within each other in April. Sigh. Artventure overload? Artventures - YES, overload - NO! You can never look at art as being too much work or you'll stop all together. Oh, I forgot about the mailing art swap with Christina and Bea's challenge. I just keep telling myself that there's no way being creative can ever kill me. LOL! Now go make some art!
