Textured grid-blocks...lightbulb moment :D
Well I found some acrylic tearing templates I bought years and years ago and thought they could work as diffusers with my texture plates???
I still haven't tried them yet because I suddenly had a light bulb moment!!
I thought about using my grid-blocks - I have some of the collage and word type texture fades and had the idea of just using a single word or item from the folder!!
But then also discovered it was quite nice to just emboss random sections.
The embossing only happens around the area the grid-block is placed.
These are my first attempts and defo not perfect but have possibilities ;-)
I taped the blocks in place and used my base plate and a cutting plate on top of the embossing folder - this way you can place the block wherever you want :D
Here's some piccis of my experimenting....
These aren't my normal choice of colours as you know, but I thought they would stand out well in my photos :D
Just a quick edit to add, after watching a tv demo on a similar vein they used the cutting plate at the bottom then the folder and the block on top which gave a much crisper outline. I will try that next time ;-)
