There are so many ways to distress a layout or card...I for one am a huge fan of inking the edges. It seems to just tie everything together. I do have to admit though, inking is pretty much all I do. I forget about all the other ways to 'distress' a layout. Here's a list of distress techniques that can alter the entire look of your project
I never think of painting the paper or chalking it to distress it. I seem to always reach for my inks so I'm going to try and use a different medium to see what kind of results I can get. I did try to sand my paper once but it just didn't seem to look right. If any of you have some tips on how to accomplish this...please share.
If you love to distress and have some techniques you'd like to share, please do!
If you would like to share a link to a project you've done that you've distressed...please do that too...we'd love to see it!
Have a great day!!
