Miriam with you again today with my top 3 and designer special mention of the August Texture challenge.

I have to say, I was totally blown away by the amazing projects that were shared for the Texture theme - it actually made my choosing very difficult.

Here are my top 3:

I totally fell in love with Alison's project.  At first glance it looks very subtle and vintage shabby chic, but when you look more into the detail there is so much to see.  I love the layers and textures created here.  Just beautiful.

This is such a textured project - and useful! Win win!  I love the texture on this vase.  And, as we slide into Autumn, it brings back memories of a wonderful Summer.  Just lovely!

I love the clean and simple look of this card.  However, when you look at it more closely you can see the wonderful texture created by paste and also ink.  The layers of colour in the flower compliment it beautifully.

Designer Special Mention:

This project blew me away.  The colours create texture alone, then you combine it with textile and different mediums.  I love the movement created here and even the added addition of the ink splats.  Totally amazing!

So, there you have it.  Thank you to everyone who joined in with the Texture challenge - it was great fin to create and even more fun seeing what you all created.

September winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is...
Congratulations Laura - your winner's code & badge will be with you shortly

I love this stamp and the tag carol made is so very pretty. Gorgeous colours and a beautiful underwater scene.

Really pretty card with lots of beautiful wildlife!

My super special mention goes to #16 empireofthecat who produced more than one piece for this 
challenge. This  canvas  is just fabulous - so much detail and so much colour and texture! Love it!

Thanks all for your beautiful entries - I wish I could have placed you all!
