National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Two Scrapbook Friends National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop! You should have started the Hop at the Two Scrapbook Friends Blog and arrived here from Tracy's blog.  Didn't you just love her repeating photos and elements!

If you got lost along the way, here is the list of blogs participating in the hop:

C = Jayne
R = Tracy
A = Joanne (you are here!)
P = Carolyn
P = Christa
Y = Shelby

My letter is "A" and my technique/element is Anything Textured. I just love texture on my scrapbook pages!  I love the dimension and the feel that it adds to my designs.

Here is the layout that I created using lots of texture.

I began by adding a pattern to my background paper using a stencil and some texture paste. 

Then I splattered some teal paint over the same areas to pull some colour from my pattern papers into the background.  All the pattern papers are from a gorgeous collection by Amy Tangerine called Plus One. 

I also added some sequins, foam alphas, a wooden heart and some buttons to my page. All items that are perfect for adding additional texture.

A fun addition to my design was the use of cheesecloth.  I just cut a piece and placed it behind my photo, letting it show in a few places.  Cheesecloth is a great way to add texture to a layout!  

I also added some machine stitching in a couple of places.

If you haven't tried using texture on your pages you really should!  It adds so much interest to your layouts.

And now you should hop over to Carolyn's blog. She has a great scrapbooking technique to share with you!

Remember to leave a comment on each blog as you go. This way you will qualify to be in a draw for a fabulous Blog Hop prize. Have fun hopping!
