IA Challenge - Texture

I confess I just couldn't get excited about last week's 'Diva' challenge, but I had no problems with this week's :)

I adore texture in clothes - slub, rather than smooth, silk; around the house - cord cushions on our leather sofa; and of course, in artworks!

Here's the journal page I did today...


I added found elements to a previously painted page...

a piece of painted sacking, topped with a piece of painted paper
cardboard letters
a piece of painted corrogated cardboard, topped with heavily painted, and scored, card, topped with a ceramic heart button

Trouble is, of course, digitally you cannot see the depths of the different textured elements :(
But hopefully, you can get the idea...

Can't wait to see what the others come up with...

But I'll drop by The Inspiration Avenue on Sunday to see... :)

Great journal page and I can see all the different textures. Corrugated cardboard is just the best!

I think you showed the textures quite nicely. Nicely done, especially the texture you got from the corrugated cardboard.

I love this! The way the paint brings out the texture of the cardboard is great!

Gorgeous combination of textures! Love the scoring on the painted card. I have some of those same ceramic buttons they're lovely :)
