Texture over-dose

Hi All,

I know I know I have been MIA but I have valid reasons for it...I am getting married and I am so neck deep in prep... Bahh I miss crafting so much but thanks to DT projects I get to craft atleast twice a month... (Bless you Color Conceptions Challenge Blog).

Now the current challenge at Color Conceptions is all about textures.. I am focusing on the Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint.. It gives such an amazing crackled finish I cannot even begin to tell you...I made an 8x8 photo page layout...

This is the complete layout... The oval is to be used for the picture.. For convenience basis I have just covered it using crackle paint...

Can you see the gorgeous crackled texture...???

Even the butterflies have crackle paint on them.. Looks like textures skin...

the textured center die-cut.. You can clearly see the cracks on this one...

the gorgeous blooms made using spell binders rose creations die and colored using stains... OMG the colors are so vibrant and to die for...

My niece posing with the layout... :D
