Just Playing with Texture

Hello all and welcome to the blog today. We are getting a snow storm so I have a few days to sit in my craft room and just play. Loving the time I have.
I wanted to work on a journal page that was just sitting around my craft area for awhile. I had used it as a wipe off page for stencils and texture paste awhile back
The page was entirely white when I began 

I added some shades of blue paint first
Once the paint is applied you can see all the texture created from the paste that was already there

I used Dina Wakely paint by simply adding a tad to my craft sheet and using my finger to apply it to my background

Next I added some brown paper that I roughed up the edges and glue that down
I added another stencil and used two shades of DecoArt paint to create the doily 

I also added more texture on top of my brown paper with more stencils and texture paste
I then did some stamping here and there with a Stampotique Stamp by France Papillon
You can see in this close up photo all that texture

I glued a piece of burlap onto my background and 
lastly I added black texture paste through a few stencils to create my main images
I used a Tim Holtz stamp for my quote

Thanks for coming by the blog today, hopefully you have some time to create
