More paint – and more texture.

I sploshed some more paint around this morning – and this time I remembered the additives. textured surfaces3

Clockwise from top left:

  • washing up liquid and salt;
  • Brusho powder sprinkled on damp paper;
  • plastic canvas put on the wet paint and left till dry;
  • ditto with bubble wrap.IMG_7787
  • I picked these up on our walk yesterday – I know what they look like but they are actually bark chippings from a woodland path. Rather than trying to reproduce the texture in stitch, I'm thinking of incorporating them in an embroidery – when I get my muse back…
