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…


  1. Nice to see you back in your studio, Shoshi! These totally gorgeous backgrounds and lend themselves to so many possibilities! Enjoy playing and having some fun - you've so earned it over the past couple of months!

  2. Lovely colours and textures Shoshi - looking forward to seeing more of your "secret" project in the future....
