Using Texture Paste in Art Journaling


This week we take a look at adding texture paste in our art journals.  Texture paste is a creamy, lightly whipped substance that spreads like frosting.  I generally apply it with a pallet knife.  It works great with stencils, which is how I used it on my page today.  I have even used dry wall spackle as a substitute. 

I placed stencils onto my page and spread the texture paste onto the stencil, lifted the stencil and allowed the paste to dry.  Once dry, it is firm but a tad spongy.  You can paint on it and even sand it smooth.  I left my texture paste flowers white and painted and doodled around them.

How will you use texture paste this week in your journal?
