Texture-ific!

Last week I mentioned my explorations in texture. When I get a writing assignment, I tend to immerse myself in that process or technique. The more I play, the more I love whatever it is I’m doing! (Yes, I am THAT fickle!) Writing about texture for the October issue of Crafts ‘n things magazine was no exception. I got to play with embossing folders, specialty papers and letterpress. I am one lucky gal.

This week I will show you some of my playtime, er, I mean, work time results. (And be sure to pick up the October issue of Crafts ‘n things!)

First up are some tags and an ATC made using embossing folders.

This ATC (unfinished) uses Core’dinations paper (love the built-in texture already on this paper; then when you emboss and sand you get the white core for more definition.) The embossing folder is from Tim Holtz Alterations, French Connection (for Sizzix) and is designed specifically for the smaller scale of an ATC. But wouldn’t it make a pretty additon to the corner of a card?

Same paper (but in tag form) with the addition of the beautiful Elegant Bouquet embossing folder from Stampin’ Up!. I love this folder because the pattern is just in the corner, leaving you plenty of stampable space.

And here is that same folder, but on white. Yum.

Stay tuned for more texture!
