I'm so thrilled and excited today to be a guest designer on Balzer Designs, that's the amazing Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's blog. Julie is an awesome artist, teacher and designer of fabulous stencils and she hosts Art Journal Every Day where we all get to share our art journal pages. Julie has had a whole series of guest design posts by some truly wonderful artists showing the many and varied ways they use stencils. Today it's my turn and my guest design post is all about home-made texture paste. Pop on over to Julie's and see what I did.

This was the special project I was working on which I mentioned a few weeks back. There's so much you can do with texture paste. I got carried away and had to stop myself doing more things or I would never have finished! When you make your own it costs pennies and you can use it to your heart's content without worrying its going to cost you a fortune or run out. If you do run out it's incredibly quick to make so even mid-project its simple to whip some more.
Here's an art journal page using some of the techniques:
