Fall Distressing



My ” Autumn” page here was done as a distress techniques tutorial and it was just a quick summary of some possible distressing tricks.

So here are those I used on this page:

  1. Score your basic paper about 1/4”, use your bone folder for the crispy line and then ink it a bit with some brown ink. You get this kind of faux stitching line all over your layout.
  2. Mist randomly over your page, just a bit and with some visible color. I used red mist very similar to my dominant photo color.
  3. Use some sandpaper around your photo to distress the edges, make it visible.
  4. Crimple your leaves circle to the small ball, open it and then ink over it randomly to get this old vintage look.
  5. Ink the round tag edges with a light brown ink.
  6. Ink the paper edges with your main paper color ink as I did with the orange paper and orange ink.
  7. Ink the flashcard with some light ink all around to get some colored look as I did over this Pumpkin flashcard.
  8. Use Ranger Distress 3D glaze to cover your inked chip boards. Don’t cover it all over. Make a thin line in the middle of your chip boards.

Renee Zwirek - This looks great! I never would’ve thought to use my scoring board to create faux stitched lines and ink them…I have to try this! I love your tree and all the fall pieces in this LO! Great tutorial, Thanks!
