Scrapbook Scribbles 12 – Texture

We all love the sense of touch.  When we see something, we want to touch it.  We want to feel if it is hard or soft, rough or smooth.

By adding texture to our layouts, it makes people connect with it.  They will want to feel the textured items you’ve attached to your layout and it will draw them in closer to your story.

You can add just about anything to your work to texturize your page.  Velvet to sandpaper, buttons and beads, embossing and layers.  Anything above and beyond the base paper adds texture.

Some suggestions might be:

*felt, velvet, sandpaper, cotton, tiles, glitter, heat embossing, silk flowers, beads, buttons, ribbon, string, chip boards, eyelets, brads, fabric, wire, thread, yarn, tags, stickers, and much more.  Pretty much, anytime you add an embellishment, you are adding texture.  You can also add texture by roughing up edges on mats behind your picture.  Paint can also add texture.

Let your “feelings” stand out, not just with your pictures and words, but also with your embellishments and the textures you use on your pages.
