I only have a few of his first texture fades, not any of the empty space ones---so you know a few of those will now be on my wish list! And yes, I did cut the middles out of most of them so I can slip in a tag to get the bottom embossed (first one was a tad scary!-I'm the girl that couldn't tear a page in my first altered book class-things were to be left pristine! LOL!) I think most of my fun came from not really having a clue as to what was really going to show up. Up until now, I kept feeling I was embossing them backwards...err, reversed, ahhh, the wrong way...and yup, I was! LOL! (Explains why my bingo one took 2 tries!)
So, after playing with them, I ended up using the Bingo one, which had Mustard Seed DI on the texture fade, Fired Brick swished over the tag, and then real bingo markers (from the old magnetic wand days!) attached. The ticket came from his Odds and Ends set, the saying is from a company that for the life of me now, I can't remember, but sorta fit, and the bingo collage is again from an old stamp I've always wanted to use -yup-virgin rubber- and colored with pencils. And can someone tell me--how is it I have NO red fibers??? So some gold (preciously horded) mohair yarn was used.
Here are a few of the others I experimented with....I'm sure they'll be cropping up for something fun!
So, go start texturing away! And have a very Happy Easter everyone!
