Get Some Texture - Challenge #7 at A Vintage Journey

Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to my latest followers, it is lovely to have you along on my crafty journey.

My lovely and very talented friend Jenny (Buttons) has chosen the theme this fortnight at A Vintage Journey - Get Some Texture.

Unlike Jenny, who is an absolute master of texture, I do not automatically think of texture when I put a project together so there was a bit of head scratching going on here!  I created a tag......




I started off with a No. 8 Ranger Kraft tag.  I have had a pack of Tim's Kraft Glassine in my stash for ages so I took a piece of it and scrumpled it up several times to break up the fibres.  I wanted it to have a 'leather look' and tried several different stains.  The one that worked the best was Victorian Velvet which was quite a surprise, I can tell you!  I embossed it with Tim's Gear Set Texture Fade and then gave it another coat of Victorian Velvet DS. The feel of the Glassine is wonderful.

I did the same again using Ranger's Adhesive Backed Foil.  I coated the embossed foil with Black Soot Distress Paint, waited a few moments and then wiped it off.  I love the industrial look this gives.  I adhered this to the tag.  I ripped a piece of the Glassine and adhered this over the foil to create my base.  I wanted to create a warm soft feel moving across to a cool textured feel.



The number 6 has been base coated with Evergreen Bough and Gathered Twigs Distress Paint, dried and then coated with Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint which gives a lovely 'touchy feely' texture.

The metal frame has been embossed with Ranger Copper Embossing Powder, quite randomly.  Once it had cooled down I dabbed Black Soot Distress Paint and also Evergreen Bough Distress Paint.  I hope you can see some of the texture in the above photo, it is always difficult to photograph against the shine of the silver background.



I cut some Movers and Shapers cogs from some of the left over Adhesive Backed foil, I rubber over them with Black Soot Distress Paint and wiped it off with a dry cloth.

To finish off I stamped 'enjoy the journey' from Tim's Simple Sayings stamp set, added part of it to the side of the tag for some extra interest.  I mounted the whole tag onto black card.  I added some linen ribbon to the top, which I rubbed over with Tea dye DS.

I hope you will head over to A Vintage Journey to see the fabulous projects that my Creative Guide Sisters have made, you will not be disappointed.  I also hope you will feel inspired to join in this fortnight with your Tim inspired projects.

As always, our wonderful sponsors, Country View Crafts are offering a £10 voucher to spend in store, to one winner, chosen by the Creative Guides (DT).  Please do read the the rules (Travelling Instructions) to be sure that you will be considered for the prize.

Thanks so much for looking, I have another post tomorrow which has some VERY exciting news that I have had to sit on for a little while - I cannot wait to share it!!  Hugs, Anne xx

  21. How wonderfully you describe each step you take and the photographs show it all so well. You would make a great tutor Anne, and everyone would feel so accomplished at the end of class. I saw some faux leather made by someone else too, it's an amazing bit of trickery isn't it. I really like this tag. Have a great weekend Anne. Love n hugs :o) xx

  24. It's interesting that you don't think of texture, Annie, when you always have so much depth and texture on your works of art and this is no exception. The coloring, the choice of details, the placement of the details, items soft and hard, warm and cool ~ what a brilliant creation through and through!! I love it! Love and hugs, Darnell
