Still Going With TIexture

"If Not Now, When?"

The last touch of texture...the feather.

Top portion

I added a handmade shadow box frame for this piece "A New Day" created from foam core board, plaster gauze and joint compound.  Construction of frame learned from Julie Haymaker Thompson

I'm still hot and heavy creating with textures.  I keep going back to the videos of the online classes I signed up for and taking advantage of my continuing interest, I'm doing all the steps the lessons are providing.  There are so many techniques between the two workshops, "The Plaster Studio" and "Texture Town", that I will probably be busy creating with texture for quite awhile.  So many possibilities, I need little outside inspiration right now.  It's been wonderful!
