Texture at Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, we've got a theme of Texture over at Chocolate Baroque this month and I've made an 8x8 canvas for my 3rd piece of artwork. I love this gorgeous lady, she's called 'Spriing Awakening' and you can find her here.

I added texture to the background using texture paste, I scored some 'rays' for a little spring sunshine with an old credit card and stamped into the texture paste with some of the stamps from Nature Fragments. Once it was dry I added a little stencilling, once it was dry I set to with acrylic paints to add some colour. I distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink.

I coloured the image with Graph'It markers and cut her out before glueing her to the canvas.

I used my glue gun and acrylic paint to create the word Spring and then added a little gilding wax here and there and lots of embellishments from Craft Box for some more texture.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Brown Sugar: anything goes
Fussy and Fancy: My favourite things
Lemon Shortbread: Anything goes
Lost Coast Designs: anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
