paperDVIZHNIK Challenge No.29.............Texture

Hello. This is my first post for paperDVIZHNIK . I am pretty excited to be a part of their very creative , arty DT ( also a little intimidated ).
This month, their challenge is about TEXTURE. We all love the look of it, and we all love the fun of creating it and of course there are so many ways of doing that.
With so many people now using mixed media as part of their scrapbooking techniques, creating texture as a visual and tactile element is really popular.
I've made a tiny canvas, 15x15cm. Already the texture of the canvas is a fantastic base to work on, and then I've just played around with different thicknesses of paper, washi tape, gel medium, acrylic paint, water colour, transfers and some metal embellishments. It's a kind of crazy little canvas. I never know what I'm going to end up with when I start a project, I never start with a preconceived idea, I usually just let the "process" dictate what I do. Any way this colourful skull emerged. It's a sort of Skeletor meets Captain Jack Sparrow.
If you would like to join in with this TEXTURE challenge, all the details are HERE

Metal embellishments and sequins. 
Gell medium with lace pressed into it.

As always thank you for visiting.
