Oh my, have you seen the new release from Catherine Pooler? I’m so excited about it. So many geometric shapes: stars, diamonds and a really neat stencil. And what do you do with stencils? You might think “ink blending” (which is not wrong), but today I’m thinking about texture paste – woohoo πŸ˜‰

I haven’t played with texture paste in way too long and this stencil was asking me to get some out and mess around with it. In my video I will share a super easy way of coloring texture paste and then using it for a fun background.

I hope you enjoyed my short video and the effect that the texture paste made.

I talked briefly about the other card that I made with the 2nd background. Here it is and I just added some fuzzy cut peacocks from the new paper pad:
