Tuesday’s Texture #1 – Featuring Anita Houston

 mixed media canvas by Anita Houston via Marjie Kemper's Tuesdays Texture Weekly Blog Series, Week 1

Today I’m starting a new weekly blog feature.  Every Tuesday I’ll be spotlighting a project that caught my eye because of it’s texture… and I’m starting off with Anita Houston’s beautiful post from Saturday, June 7th.  As you know I’m a huge fan of texture and stencils, and I just love what Anita created here.

Click on the photo to enlarge, and take a look around Anita’s site… you’ll need a cuppa to take in all her beautiful art.

I hope you enjoy this new feature and that it may introduce you to other artists who might not yet be on your radar.

Thanks for the visit! If we’re not already connected, please sign up for my newsletter or find me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, or Twitter, and Periscope.
