Life is Too Short w/ Just Us Girls (Texture Paste)

It's my second week guesting with Just Us Girls Challenge~

 The Rabbit Hole Designs Sassy Sentiments, Papertrey Ink Modern Stencil, Brutus Monroe Slate cardstock, Brea Reese Matte Metallic Texture Paste

The trend this week is texture paste.

The first thing I did when I saw the trend prompt, was google texture paste.

I came across some homemade recipes which looked doable.

I later suspected I had some in my stash, and rummaged around to see that yes, I HAD picked up some.

Now was the time to try it for the first time!

To me the hardest part was leaving it alone to dry~I'm a fidgeter!  

It took incredible self control ;).

Just play around ahead of time with various pieces that can dry~you'll figure out later what to do with it.

It's like a meal prep for cards, and you can always use it later. 

 Give it a try and link up so we can see your unique creation~

Great color combo and use of a graphic stencil. This turned out quite fabulous.

Love your texture and the pattern you used! The colors are lovely too! So excited to have you for guesting this month!

I'm glad I made you dig out that long forgotten texture paste, Marlena. The colors on your card are so complimentary and the stencil you used is perfect with texture paste.

I had texture paste that was long forgotten too and mine was all dried up upon opening. Love this sentiment too! Great masculine card!

Congratulations on guesting with JUGS, Marlena! I'm new into texture pastes, too, but then I wondered why did I wait so long? Isn't it easy, fun, and totally addicting? When I played with it about a month ago, I wanted to keep going and paste every stencil I own, so I agree with you that it's nice to have a few prepped and kept on hand. And, oh by the way, thank you for thinking of me when you made this design. Not only does it have my sign-off "Life is too short," but normal is not my jam, lol!! Hugs, Darnell

Love the simplicity of your card Marlena and your texture pasting looks fabulous. Such a lovely background colour to enhance it. Me - I love getting messy with all sorts of pastes.

I love how you added that beautiful texture with the texture paste! I know what your mean by having to be patient, but your patient really paid off on this beauty. Love the colors, too.

I agree about the waiting! It was torture for me not to touch it! I love the geometric design you created with the texture paste. Very cool card!
