Distress Much?

No photo description available.

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop where we feature Close To My Heart products in our creations. This month our theme is "Distressed much?" So it will be fun to see what the participants design to align with that topic. 

If you are coming from  Haley's blog then you are on the right track. You will find a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post.  I hope you like what I have created for you and you will use some of these techniques in your next project!

I have created a Heritage type layout and it is based on the current paper suite called "Yesterday and Today".

Here is my layout!

The distressing techniques I used are using a distressing tool on the edges of the paper.  I really dig into it in some places to give it a torn look.  You might want to work over a waste basket!

I sprayed the flowers with a bit of water, crinkled them into a ball and then carefully put them back in shape.  Once they dried I used a sponge and ink pad and gave them some distressing color!

I also used the sponge and ink pad to distress the paper on my mats and the cardstock pieces.

I used the Stamp of the month to stamp on the two out side pieces!  "Family Legacy"

I just love this set!   It is only $5 with a $50 order!  Or you can buy it out right for $18.95.   It is only available during the Month of March!

I also used the Yesterday and Today Complement and Velum pieces which I may add more of them after I place my photo's .

Next it is on over to Lauren's blog to see what great distressing techniques she has for you!
