Texture over at Try it on Tuesday

Good morning peeps.
I hope this finds you all well and ready for a new challenge. This week over at Try it on Tuesday we are looking at texture for this weeks challenge. Sponsored by The Craft Barn who are giving a £15.00 voucher to the winner.  Also just to tell you that there is FREE POSTAGE for all UK orders, for the EU, free postage on orders above £20.00 and for the rest of the world, free postage on orders above £30.00 at The Craft Barn until 6pm Thursday 02 February 2012!
There is plenty of inspiration over at the Try it on Tuesday blog HERE so do pop on over.
For my project this week I was playing in my journal and looking at ways of adding texture to a page.

 I embossed some lightweight card with a clocks embossing folder and adhered it to my page with multi medium. When I blended distress ink over the page it gives you a lovely texture to the page without adding too much bulk. I cut out the clock and then covered with ink and distress crackle which also adds some lovely subtle textures too.
Hope you all have a lovely day and that you have time to create art!

Ooooh this has got to be my favourite one so far ... I really must start experimenting more and just play around ... I'd love to produce something like this but too scared to start! D x

A fabulous textured piece Neil, you are so good at producing these wonderfully tactile works of art! Love your book below too, what a special way to use the paper. Hope you've had a great start to your week.
