Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Creating texture on clothes

Hello, I'm back today to share my Graph It colouring challenge DT make. 

For this week's challenge I had a play with creating texture on clothes and in particular denims. Once I finished colouring my image (Cell by Saturated Canary), I sprayed some Mix It Fluid onto a textured towel. I then dabbed the cloth onto the coloured jean's, not rushing to allow the fluid to lift some of the colour and to leave the impression of the cloth.


Here's a close up of the jeans -  


I'm really pleased with the effect and will play around with different materials to see what texture they create!
Once dried I framed this image to create a picture.

The Graph It's I used are - 
Skin = 4115, 4120, 4125, 4135, 4150, 4155, 4170
Hair/shoes = 3190, 6160, 5140, 4150
T-shirt/bag = 7140, 7145, 9103
Denim = 9100, 9102, 9103, 9505, 7180

Would love to see your creations using the fabulous Graph It's.

I'm also entering this into the following challenges - 

Take care Zo xx
