What kinds of techniques, things come to mind?

Are there texture-based techniques you would like to know more about?

I would love to see fabric! I'm involved in many hobbies one of them being quilting and I have more fabric then i would like to admit. I also have denim. Would really love to see jean pockets on something. I know this probably sounds weird, but I love jeans.

I think for me I most often think of twine or embroidery floss, followed by ribbon and on the rare occasion, felt (felt most often for cards rather than LOs).

I thought of paper tearing, and embossing first. or maybe even lacy, doily-ish die cut pieces.

Twine and sewing add texture.

smooth is also a texture, so things like buttons, enamel dots, and vellum.

I love inking edges for grungy texture, or ink splatters.

And a bit of glitter or shimmer with sequins.

Once I started thinking about there is a lot of texture out there.

I love the look of hand sewing and the addition of buttons and brads.

When I started scrapping (~2003), there were TONS of papers that had real texture...bamboo/weave, cork, faux suede. And mesh! Remember mesh? I have some scraps that I still use sometimes.
