Lawnscaping Challenge: TEXTURE sponsored by Lawn Fawn

Welcome to another Lawnscaping Challenge. The final Lawnscaping challenge of 2011! I can’t believe in just a few short weeks, Lawnscaping will be turning one! And I hear every one will be receiving a prize! Hmmmm. πŸ™‚

This challenge is all about Texture! Texture is defined by a number of things… Embossing, distressing, glitter, stickles, dimension…. There is a world of possibilities!!!! We are sponsored by the fabulous Lawn Fawn!!! They have offered up a free stamp set to the winner! Here is what I created inspired by this photo:

I took one of the smaller ornaments from Ornate OrnamentsΒ and turned into pinecones (I hope you can tell)….. Β I added stickles to create the snow type effect… The background was created using a woodgrain embossing folder and distress inks….. I cut a vellum sentiment strip and adhered it to the bottom of the panel after I distressed the edges. I hope you like it.

Head on over to the Lawnscaping blog and see what the rest of the design team created!
