Texture Overload!

This weeks theme over at
Simon Say Stamp'n'Show
is 'Texture'
And boy have I got plenty of that.
Her work is truly AMAZING
So with a little help from a friend {you know who you are} I created this
Now to be fair I had no clue what I was doing and I think if I was to try the technique again {unsupervised} there are a few aspects I would do differently. Ideally what I'd like is for Anna to come to the UK and teach. But as that's not an option right now I shall keep playing and developing, For a first attempt i'm pretty pleased with myself.
So thank you Anna for the amazing inspiration, and thank you to my Sargent major er I mean teacher.
Stay Inky

I am also a HUGE fan of Finnabair. Your art using her technique looks great! I watched a tutorial on her blog tonite that lasted 1 1/2 hrs. OMG. I learned a lot and hope I can follow her suggestions to create a piece close to her works of art. Will give it a try anyway. thanks, sue
