Challenge #3: Add texture to your background!

Flat and smooth can be good, but for a project that people want to reach out and touch, a little texture is just what you need.  Layers, embossing, burlap, glitter, veneers…these are all great ways to give a bit of texture to your background!


Here is an example of some great texturizing!  Jennifer made a layout based on the sketch for Scrap365 (You should check them out…great challenges to finish up your kits!)

Pink Noses by Jennifer Grace

I love all of the bits Jennifer used to add texture to her layout:
1.  Sequins on the journaling
2.  Glittered ribbon
3.  Puffy star with sequins
4.  Layered paper
5.  Clip heart near photo
6.  Stitching on speech bubble
7.  Decorative edges on some of the papers
8.  Dots and bling

Here are some great examples from our Master Forgers:

Stephanie layered patterned papers (9 total!) to create her page. The mix of patterns and designs, paired with spray mists and 3D foam dots, helped create a textured look for her Hawaii layout.
