A little inspiration

We all need a little outside inspiration don't we?  A couple of weeks ago I went over to Pages2Scrap my local (aren't I lucky) papercraft store and did a workshop with the amazing Rachel Greig from Darkroom Door.  Here is the finished product:
The canvas measures 20cm x 20cm or 8 x 8 inches and the individual tile measure 5 x 5cm or 2 x 2 inches.  Each tile was treated with a different technique using Viva Decor texture mediums called Terra, Ferro and Croco and Viva Decor Precious Metal Colours.  Here is a close up:


I really enjoyed this workshop and it certainly helped getting the creative juices flowing.  Thanks Rachel!

Hi Ros, Wow, this is beautiful. I love all that texture and eye candy.
So nice to see you had time to create, you always do the nicest things.
Take care and sure have missed visiting you.

Gorgeous canvas Ros.
Wish I lived closer.
I have only used the Precious Metal and can't wait to try the others.

Ooh, I want to reach through the screen and touch those yummy textures!! How Fun!

ok, so I'm answering your question from your comment from over a week ago (sorry!! my lil one got sick AGAIN!!!) I don't know what kind of trees are in the shadow shots, but they were really lovely! LOL!! Well, I guess you can't really call that an answer, but there it is ;-)
