What a day! The weather is just awful! Rain, wind ,snow and COLD! Definately weather to be indoors. I have been in my workroom all day.....music, milo, and plenty of inspiration. Cats are curled up by my feet and life is good...VERY good. The cards I have posted today all have backgrounds made with a technique called FAUX FRESCO TILING. This very clever technique uses embossed watercolour paper to achieve a textured effect much like worn plastered tiles. Artists Gesso and Versemark ink, embossed, tend to leave a shine on the paper similar to a tile. It's a bit messy, but certainly worth the effort.
