I've hit a bit of a lull on the scrapping front and haven't actually managed to make very much since the beginning of the month, meaning my Counterfeit Kit Challenge March kit, Balance, is practically untouched.
But I did manage to pull my mojo out of its rut to come up with a layout for challenge #3 this month over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog which was "Background Texture"
Now, if I'm honest, I kind of looked around Jennifer's blog a bit too and feel that there's a lot we have in common as far as layers and sparkle and bits and bobs go and so you could also say that this layout is also for challenge #2 which was to be inspired by the wonderful Jennifer herself!
Anyway, this is not a masterpiece and a classic example of where the vision in my head is a long way away from the reality of the result. But it's a done and we will see if I warm up to it.
I started off by adding lots of layers with distressed and inked edges, then I dry brushed some gold mist to the cardstock and papers for a bit of interest. I added veneer, twill, enamels, a canvas frame and some elements cut out of my papers on foam dots.
There's also glitter paper, tissue washi tape and foam glitter letters. Enough texture? I think so!
I thought the neutral based kit would be perfect for the bright colours from Chinese New Year in Singapore but I'm not sure if it really worked... We will see :-)
Next on the blog hop list today is Tina (on her blog here) and here's the full list in case you get lost along the way. Don't forget to let me know you were here and what's your top tip for adding texture?
