Feels like winter…

Dec 12, 2010

Final­ly we are hav­ing some cold tem­per­a­tures, once again. It has cooled down and warmed up so much this month. I’m ready for the cold weath­er to get here and stay. It is way too hard to get into the Christ­mas Spir­it when it’s 70 some­thing degrees out­side.

This is the last week of my “All Things Win­ter” work­shop. Today, I shared tips on dis­tress­ing. I love the dis­tressed look on projects and there are so many fun tools you can use that allow you to achieve dif­fer­ent looks. My absolute favorite dis­tress­ing tool hands down is the Ton­ic Stu­dios Tim Holtz Paper Dis­tress­er, this lit­tle tool fits per­fect­ly in my hand and is always an arms reach away.

This week I will show you how to recre­ate the lay­outs below. As you can see it will be a glit­ter week. If you are not a glit­ter per­son you can use Metal­lic Acrylic Paints, Metal­lic or Iri­des­cent Maya Mists or Maya Road Metal­lic Inkpads. There are lots of ways to get some sparkle with­out using glit­ter. I think Stick­les is a super great way of glit­ter­ing if fine glit­ter is not for you.

I have some cute tuto­ri­als sched­uled this week and I think you are going to want to make them… actu­al­ly I am pret­ty sure you will.
