Textured Layers for Let's Get Trendy Now! 3

Hi everyone!

I'm up at the Let's Get Trendy Now! 3 workshop! Come and see all the different projects and be inspired to create! The focus for today is Textured Layers and I love me some texture and some layers!

I thought I'd do a quick run down of how I usually approach my layouts. I typically start by layering different mediums to create the background. There are so many out there: gesso, textured pastes, paints, mists and crayons just to name a few.

And just think of all the different ways to apply those mediums: brushes, stamps, stencils, punchinella, heck.... fingers! Again, just to name a few.

After I'm satisfied with the background, I layer with my papers and embellishments.

For my final step, I'll doodle here and there to emphasize certain features or to create interest. I also flick on extra bits of paint or mists at this point. And that's it, my formula for a textured, layered page!
