Breaking Out my Distress Oxides

Today I actually opened my new Distress Oxides! I can hardly call them “new,” actually – I bought them months ago but haven’t had a chance to try them until now.

I made two background sheets for a project I am working on at the moment – sorry I can’t be more forthcoming about that, but it’s got to be kept secret for now.

23 Distress Oxide Backgrounds

At the top is a mixture of Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Jeans, and at the bottom, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilised Amber and Fired Brick, with a little Peeled Paint all over. I used a combination of smooshing on my craft sheet and blending directly on the cardstock and then spritzing. I am quite pleased with the result but it doesn’t look quite as good as some people’s that I’ve seen online. Perhaps I need to practise more!

They are now under a pile of heavy books to try and flatten out the wrinkles a bit.

It is such a joy being back in my studio again…
