well, I'm not stressed out, it's summer here- no school, no work, just play!! But, the challenge at Lasting Memories this week is distressing, so I'm getting stressed out in the craftroom! Here's my latest layout:
Here's what I did to distress... First off I used a distressing tool to rough up the edges of my photo. Secondly, I tore the bottom edge of my vellum pattern paper to give that a rough edge. Vellum is fun to tear, it doesn't show in the photo, but it has a lovely white core when you tear into it. Thirdly, I added ink along all the edges, and I dragged two different ink pad across the white CS (I didn't have the right color to match the vellum; using both a mint green and a light blue kind of did the trick!). For my final distressing technique, I ran white paint across my chipboard shape before adding my title.
