Bloggers Challenge - Add Texture

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks to those who took the time to play along with last weeks Alter It Theme for the Bloggers Challange, loved seeing all the wonderful takes on the challenge.  This weeks Bloggers Challenge is Add Texture (ie embossing folders, paints and the like).

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder, Quote and Quotables, Flower Market, Secretary Pool

I used the Pulled Color Technique from the August Technique Junkie Newsletter for the background, morphing the technique a bit to create interest.  My texture comes into play with the added Paints and Gesso used to create the background.  The images from the Artistic Outpost plates: Think and Wonder, Quote and Quotables, Flower Market and Secretary Pool.
