Yesterday I shared a video + idea for another way to use texture fades by Tim Holtz. Today I will share my first project with this technique:
I used the Halloween Night texture fade in this example. I LOVE this one and all the detail it has. Once dry and peeled (the embossed glue sheet, that is) I rubbed a 4×5 canvas with my Spiced Marmalade distress ink. Then I rubbed with liquid adhesive and set my ‘glue faux-fruit roll’ on top. The result? As it dried the ink pooled in a few spots and not in others, creating an uneven orange background behind the translucent glue. LOVE IT!
Then I stickled it to within an inch of it’s life. Ok, not really but you can see I used stickles glitters to accent the cat, number, web, and a few other details.
I also used some Dusty Concord distress crackle paint to accent some edges, and I applied Rock Candy distress crackle paint lightly to some areas – especially the skeleton. Once dry I rubbed over it with black soot to help make the cracks stand out. You might notice I let some edges of the glue sheet stand up. I was TOTALLY ok with that. Really I was just having some fun playing here – and in the process came up with another little home decor piece to add to my spook-i-fied house!!
You can probably tell I’m having a blast with Tim’s products. I really like that I’m finding more uses for them in my craft projects, and truly how easy they are to use and how everything works together.
