Creating Distressed Marks

I bet most of you might have waited anxiously to see my finished layout using the last few techniques I've shared. But before I upload it, I would liked to share another technique that I've used on that layout. It's the "Creating Distressed Marks" technique. This is also a very simple technique and adds some cool distressed marks on your project.

Here are the steps.

1) Fold the area that you want to create your distressed marks against the edge of your table. This will create a folded line.
2) While it's still folded against the edge of your table, use a sponge with some distress ink and lightly rub against the folded edge to create a distressed mark on your page or paper.
3) Repeat the above steps as many times as you desire to create some distressed marks on your project.

This technique is so simple that anyone can do it in seconds. I will be uploading my finished layout in my next post. Keep an eye for it!
