Hello and a warm welcome to everyone.
You are here at my blog where I am showcasing
 some Dusty Attic chipboard pieces,
 I felt like having a play, just because !!! 
Today I am sharing a textured layout with you 
The background was created with a mask.
My process 
Lay the mask on your paper. spray with Ink, remove mask, then dry with heat gun.
  Return the mask back over the inked image and add texture paste,  
This technique is so simple and such fun to play with .


This LO I created just for fun, I adore the photo taken by my daughter Tara
director of Simply Photographic

Process for my chipboard ... 
step 1 . paint with DA Cranberry   
step 2. coat with some Distress ink /Mahogany .
step 3. Paint with some DA crackle paint .
step 4. dab very lightly with white chalk ink .
' Make sure to dry thoroughly between each layer. '
