CC3C #4: Pg: 49 Layering Stencil: Texture Paste

Welcome to another installment of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge, Vol. 3, hosted by Linda at Studio L3.  This is the fourth challenge in where we work through the techniques of Tim Holtz from, you guessed it…his 3rd Volume of the Compendium of Curiosities!!  As in the past challenges, we can’t give details on the challenge, so don’t ask, but do go get your own copy of Tim’s fabulous book.  Also, The Funky Junkie Boutique has offered an extremely generous $50 Gift Certificate for all the even numbered weeks! So grab a copy, and join in to play!!  All the deets are here, at Linda’s blog!

Texture paste is pretty cool stuff! I had bought the Golden Modeling Paste for a project to make a texture plate for Gelli plate printing. (Then I had to break my addiction to Gelli plate printing because I kept running out of paper. But I can handle it now; so the project is on my near future to-do list.)

Bumpy Detail
Now, Tim didn't specify a type; and (you've heard this before) I would have sworn I had some of the gold Dreamweaver Texture paste—stored upside down like the lady said to prevent drying…but I couldn't find the Golden one it was.  How very fun!  I know you can colorize the stuff; but I didn't  do that; after it was dry I place the stencil back over and colored with Salty Ocean Distress Stain…it was so fun I also did a birthday card, which I can’t show as it hasn't arrived yet!  This also gave me the perfect opportunity to use my new Sea and Sand Die. The saying is from Our Daily Bread.

While I don’t think this will be a daily technique; it is a great tool to add texture to canvas’s and cards..well; everything! I’m thinking a crackle stencil over a box….hmmm.

So head on over to Linda's to get the's a great technique to try...and you might win stuff!
