Welcome back for another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics!
For this challenge we want to see more than just paper, glue and ink.
We want to see TEXTURE and lots of it!  We want to you guys and gals to create projects that make us want to reach through the computer screen and touch everything we see!  The more creative the better.  We love it when you guys and gals think outside of the box and make something with that extra "WOW" factor.

Of course we must address the fine print.  Although the focus of the challenge is to use TEXTURE, you must still use a stamped image (real or digi) and you must follow the rules posted on the left sidebar of the challenge blog to be in the running for a prize.  Collage sheets may be used to enhance your project, but they do NOT count as a stamped image so make sure you use a stamp of some sort in your final piece.
This is my project.... a small metal box.....with shaped sequins on it..... faux rusted, dainty chain,
silk flowers, chip board cogs, and crackle glazed butterflies..... these are from SMEARED INK.
I hope you'll join us this fortnight..... i love playing with texture.
Next is my DELICIOUS DOODLES piece ..... where the challenge is
I used LOVELY LILIES from Teri, various dies and an embossing folder.
I was a bit naughty as i added matte silver to my embossed panels.... but the card really did
need it!
You have until thursday to join in with us.... hope you'll get time.
Saturday was the 1st of June and my turn to do the calender page at de-Stempelwinkel.
My girls came up with the idea and helped to make it. The little girl images are from de-Stempelwinkel,
the background is made using stencils and promarkers by my girls and I.

DOMINOART has a challenge running at the moment thats ALTER ANY GAMES PIECE(S),
i altered one of the wooden jigsaws my girls threw out. I used various ALICE images from Non-sequitur,
coloured with promarkers.
You have another couple of weeks to join us...... altering something thats headed for the bin is
such a good thing to do..... i love salvaging stuff.
This is what it started out as.... rather a nice....if boring horse.
Thanks for sparing the time to visit. BDx

  2. wow some absolute stunners here Lyn but I love the rusty box the best - wow !

  3. OMG, that box is utter perfection! The white on white is sooo elegant. the calender page is precious and I didn't realize the puzzle was yours on Domino Art. You should enter is in The Altered Alice, my dear! I wanna be you when I grow up! (Yeah, we Minions all say that, don't we?) xxD

  4. All four pieces are STUNNING BD, I agree with all of Donna's comment above, I wish I had half your talent, but please, don't let Alex hear you using the words "boring" and "horse" in the same sentence LOL
