Below is a showing of the Textures I used and the LB canvas pieces I used as added texture on my LO and canvas.
The first Texture is a white cotton material that looks a lot like the chicken wire we have grown to love so much in scrapbooking. The Texture takes on color mist very well, no need to coat it with gesso before adding mist to change the color. You can also use this texture as a mask using molding paste and gently creating your design, then the piece can still be used on your work. The chevron Texture is made of burlap and it just as heavy body and durable as the cotton Texture. I love creating with both as they add that pop of something different, dimension and texture to your creation.
For my LO I used a leafy patterned paper as my background and concentrated on only altering the section where I planned on placing my picture. I actually turned my paper (bottom to right) because I liked the look of the leaves from this angle. Surprisingly, I didn't use a lot of mediums on this LO, only gesso and inks. The few spots of crackle you see was added using my crackle mask and Distress Ink. I didn't want to take away from the pattern of the leaves or the Textures I planned on using.
Here is a view of the layering underneath the photo. All done with washi & masking tape, scrap pieces of pattern paper and of course my LB Textures.
Next is a mini canvas I altered heavily with multiple layers of mediums.
A close up look at the Textures added to this canvas. Almost sad that when creating mixed media projects a lot of the goodness ends up covered up throughout the process. But that's all apart of building dimension.
Thanks for stopping by taking a peek at what I created using Linnie Blooms Textures. See how easy it is to create using Textures? I hope this has tempted you to try using Textures on your LO's and other altered projects.
