Okay, so, Phindy's Place Challenge Blog this week has a challenge that was, well, challenging for me! This week is all about distressing and it had me distressed! I didn't know quite where to start but the idea of taking a brand spankin' new piece of DP and ripping, tearing, etc. - WHAT???? But, I pushed up my sleeves and gave it a go!
So, for my background paper I crinkled it up into a ball. The second layer was crinkled into a ball and then ripped in half (that took a few years off my life I think). The paper flowers that I made were crinkled and then I ran them under water and then put it on the heater to dry. Finally, I took each layer and ran scissors over all of the edges to make them "distressed". While doing all of this, I just kept thinking "why am I ruining this paper?".
Well, I have to say, when I put it all together, I LOVE IT! It's totally not "me" - well not normally anyway, but I do love it!
Thanks for the challenge Phindy! It was phun!!
