I'm participating in the 29th Challenge from Tim Holtz's book "Compendium of Curiosities 2" on Linda's blog. This week the technique is Texture Fades Techniques on pg. 64 of Tim's book. I did the first of the two techniques in the book. This is the background I created with one of Tim's Texture Fades (a type of embossing folders). It's hard to tell in this photo, but the dark brown is the recessed area and the honey yellow is the raised area.
