I love texture! I especially love texture that's easy to achieve...I'm lazy like that...heehee
When I first discovered Pebeo Fantasy paint I instantly fell in love with it...
I mean all you do is apply it and let it dry.As it dries it creates this yummy crater effect.Last year I used it on some chip board puzzle pieces(the pieces had to be sealed first so that the paint would not sink into the chipboard) and I loved the way they came out and was fortunate enough to get them published. The blue one always reminds me of Van Gogh's Starry Night.
Recently I started working on some Tombstones for a swap with Retro Cafe. I made these about for different ways and I just wasn't happy with any of them. Then I thought about the Pebeo. So I turned my tombstones over and added one color of paint,then dropped in smaller drops of another color. Then I took a toothpick and gently swirled the paint around. I just loved the way the came out.
When they dried,I added a wonderfully wicked image of Mr Poe, some of his words and black chipboard cut outs.Then I sealed it completely with Modge Podge. Lastly, I covered all the pieces in Clear cast and sprinkled on star glitter and micro beads.
Simple,but full of yummy texture!
I loved the pebeo paint effect so much that I did again, but this time I used a Flaming Heart Shrine and made it the focal in a new journal.
Gotta love easy peasy texture.
