Under Construction

Did something by accident, but think it is quite effective. I didn’t want the brads to be nice and shiny seeing as everything else has been distressed. So I filed them a bit. Then when I put a bit of paint on them. And then accidently added a bit of Tim Holtz distress ink…

… then being the impatient person that I am I tried to add the rub ons before everything was completely dry.

They wouldn’t stick… BUT they pulled the paint and ink off and now it has a masked effect. Not sure that it would work every time though.

  2. I think the best LO’s are always the ones that dont go to plan & you have to improvise ! It looks fantastic – love the grungy feel to go with the construction theme!
