Masking to Create a Distressed Border

In my latest layout titled "Inside" I've used the making technique to create a distressed inked border to the photograph.



First of all you have to create your own template. Simply just tear out a piece of paper ( I would normally use some thick old magazine pages) and later create some tear-ins along the edges of the template. Place the template along the border of your photograph and do some masking. In my example, I've used some distress ink (vintage photo and black soot) to do my masking.
