Creating a Moss Effect


Isn't this cool? I just love this different way in distressing. We used to distress our embellishments or pages using some darker tones to resemble old aged or burnt effect.

I was inspired by some real moss that I came along while having a walk. We all know that moss grows through a period of time. Therefore, it does shows that a surface had been left untouched for some time and is aging.

To create this moss effect, simply apply some Peeled Paint Distress Stickles randomly on your embellishment or surfaces and spread it out using your fingers. Add as much of Distress Stickles as you want and let it dry. Isn't this a fast and easy technique? Try it and start having some moss effect on your projects.
