Case file 34 is open

Hello friends, hop over to CSI and see these gorgeous colors.

The background is actually coral but it appears red than it seems. Oh well....
I played with gesso and olive paints.

i am loving my distressed and torn edges.

Hope you have a great week ahead.

Textures texures

This week reveal at CSI is such a soothing selection of colors. Hop over now.

I want to share with you some tips in making this page:
1) To create the textured background, I took a piece of kleenx (tissue paper) and some teal paints. Dab over the tissue and it absorbs the paints. You can very interesting creases and textures along the way.

2) I added burlap behind the photos. You can get burlap from Spotlight. I got mine from Australia Spotlight while holidaying there last year. I hope the Singapore store carries this fantastic materials.

3) I found a very 'holey' trim among my Maya Arts trim... another possible way of adding textures.

4) Finally splatter some brown paints over. I also spray a pearl mist over the painted areas.

Hope you like these techniques I share today. Go and try them! Have fun
