How to add Layered Textures on a Layout
Do you enjoy adding lots of layered textures to your Layouts? Are you sometimes in need of some texture layering ideas or inspiration? In this post I am sharing a Process Video and Six Ideas for how I used a variety of different textures and layered them on top of each other to create this Layout of my two little boys. They are both book lovers, so I thought this photo of them reading books would be suitable to Kaisercraft’s new Documented Collection.
Step 1 – Texture Paste and Template for Layered Textures
The first step I take when wanting to add layered textures to a Layout is to use some Texture Paste and a Template. Kaisercraft have a huge range of Templates and they release new ones every month to co-ordinate with their current collections. For this Layout I chose to use IT459 Stencil Words Template with a mix of white paint and texture paste. This provides a good base for the layering.
Step 2 – Fussy Cut Paper Shapes for Layered Textures
The second way I added Textured Layering was to choose some papers from the Documented Collection. I fussy cut these papers to suit the design of my Layout. I chose the Papers below:
P2465 – Documented Pencils
P2468 – Documented Desktop
Step 3 – Use Decorative Dies for Layered Textures
The third way you can add layered Texture to a Layout is by cutting some Decorative Dies. In this Layout I used Two Decorative Dies by Kaisercraft as shown below:
DD807 – Mini Card Pocket
DD798 Cut-Out Textures
Decorative Dies can be so very useful in creating substance to a Layout. I rely on them heavily.
Step 4 – Different Types of Adhesive for Layered Textures
In most of my projects I am often using a variety of types of adhesives depending on what I am sticking down. In this Layout I use the following Kaisercraft products:
T314 Double Sided Tape
T301 Glue Stick
T321 Acid Free Craft Glue
LDB1056 Foam Tape
Step 5 – Embellishment for Layered Textures
Probably my favourite part of the Layout is to use lots of different embellishments to decorate. Collectables and Wooden Flourishes are perfect for adding Texture to a Layout. I don’t like to go without these products:
FL617 Flourish Pack Classroom
Step 6 – Stamping for Layered Textures
I left the stamping to last with this Layout…but you can pop it in wherever feels most comfortable to you. I used a Black Ink Pad and the Documented Clear Stamp Set to add lots of decorative Stamping to my finished Layout.
Documented Clear Stamp
IP719 Small Ink Pad – Black
These are some of my ideas for adding Layered Texture to a Layout. Do you have some that you use? I would love to hear.
