sarah, how do you tombow? with textured cardstock!!! 2

occasionally i get an assignment that stumps me….
you’ve seen them before, but this one has got my head going in so many different directions and no where really at all.

How do you Tombow? with TEXTURE!

what is texture? i actually looked it up on


1. the visual and especially tactile quality of a surface: rough texture.
2. the characteristic structure of the interwoven or intertwined threads, strands, or the like, that make up a textile fabric: coarse texture.
3. the characteristic physical structure given to a material, an object, etc., by the size, shape, arrangement, and proportions of its parts: soil of a sandy texture; a cake with a heavy texture.
4. an essential or characteristic quality; essence.
5. Fine Arts .

a.the characteristic visual and tactile quality of the surface of a work of art resulting from the way in which the materials are used.
b. the imitation of the tactile quality of represented objects.
6. the quality given, as to a musical or literary work, by the combination or interrelation of parts or elements.
7. a rough or grainy surface quality.
8. anything produced by weaving; woven fabric.
–verb (used with object)

9. to give texture or a particular texture to.
10. to make by or as if by weaving.
even more daunting than before. well in my effort to make this a no-brainer and just go with the flow i realized that i have worked with more textures than i had realized, but still didn’t have a project idea to go with.
one thing i do love about my favorite tombow adhesive  – the dots adhesive runner – is that it gets into the little grooves on textured cardstocks. i use cardstock alot. my main staple for crafting. and i love the textures that are available, especially the ones from bazzill. when i use my dots adhesive runner on these textures i feel like i am getting a good strong bond, as the dots fit into the grooves of the textures on the paper.
here is one of my favorite scrapbook pages – texture cardstock and dots adhesive runner used!
tombow adhesives are great for adding texture to a page. there are different kinds of adhesives for different textures. the glue pen is wonderul for adding glitter, crushed velvet flock, and heat embossing with. mono aqua is wonderful with heavier embellishments, the mono metal is great for – you guessed it, metal. and mono multi is great for layering papers and chipboards.
so, now that i understand it better i think i need to go through my stash of extra stuff and come up with a game plan for adding more texture to my scrapbooking.
what kind of texture projects have you done? send me some inspiration!
